Webliography: Online Tools for Learning Languages on the Web

Here’s a new webliography compiled and written by Seth Kershner, public services librarian at Northwestern Connecticut Community College,

It appears in the February 2013 issue C&RL News.

Kershner writes:

Those who fork over the money for the more sophisticated, fee-based learning tools see them as quite affordable compared to the high cost of college and university language courses. But more affordable still are the free, but lesser known learning tools found on the Web. The following pages contain a selective list of freely available Internet resources for students, scholars, and the general public.

Resources are organized into the following categories:

  • Getting Started
  • Reference Tools
  • Broadcasts and Podcasts
  • TV as Teacher
  • Less commonly taught languages (LCTLs)
