Linkua and iTalki: Language Learning Sites

June 19th, 2008

Linkua ListingMaybe you love languages, like to meet people, want a refresher, or are ready to admit that our globalized world demands unique cultural skills, but whatever the reason you seek out language exchange, web 2.0 has the tongue of your choosing. Language lesson marketplace Linkua, has an impressive range of languages, and, since there are a finite number of places to pick up Basque, Cebuano, and Zapotec, an excellent place to look for less common languages. The interface is old school, but this marketplace for language uses Skype and VOiP as a medium, so wherever the webcam is, that’s the classroom.

iTalki ListingThe benefit of paid lessons are that you can guide your education as you like, but if the bill seems too much or you want a more social experience, head over to iTalki, where the learning can be done in 97 languages, by group or individual. Browse the people and interact over chat, file share, video, voice – whatever your partner agrees to. One of the more appealing aspects of iTalki are the wikis and files that are hosted on the site, where helpful speakers of the language guide your studies.
