LinguaeLive is a free web tool for instructors created by instructors. It allows any of them to connect with colleagues teaching complementary language classes across the globe. They can then link their students for peer-to-peer communication using eTandems.
LinguaeLive now has hundreds of registered courses and eTandems going on in several languages, with English-Spanish, English-German, English-Japanese, German-Spanish, English-French, and Chinese-English best represented. As the program continues its rapid expansion with more classes and languages registered, teachers of any language anywhere will be able to incorporate in their class learning activities weekly spoken and/or written exchanges with native speakers.
Students give the experience high marks, practicing a new language with an "expert" and in turn being an "expert" for their new friend who lives far away. LinguaeLive also involves the students in language learning activities in addition to the few hours each week in class, extending their language-learning time. Other advantages: The language use becomes more practical and relevant, and the students learn more about the culture associated with the target language.
LinguaeLive was developed by Jennifer Hosek, a professor in the Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department at Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada, with a small team of colleagues. Visit the website for more information: www.linguaelive.ca
