“The Internet, with its unparalleled ability to connect people throughout the world, is changing the way that many people learn languages” writes Peter Wayner in Learning a Language From an Expert, on the Web, an article from the New York Times (July 28, 2010).
The article touches on 2 of the themes that emerged in my study Global Trends in Language Learning in the 21st Century:
- Using technology in language learning (new trend)
- Taking an individualized, learner-centered approach (new trend)
- Saying that learning languages is easy (outdated myth)
The way we learn languages is changing at a rapid pace. A new school year is approaching. What techniques, methodologies and approaches are you going to use that are appropriate for the 21st century?
