I am currently researching the topic of using language learning sites or social media to practise or learn languages collaboratively. I thought it might be a good idea if we shared our tips on sites we use explaining why.
italki to read and take part in discussions about language learning + find partners and ask for or give corrections
Duolingo to practise structures, pronunciations and vocab in the languages I am working on and to explore new languages
Facebook groups to read and take part in discussions threads around the language learning
ConversationExchange to find language partners
Italki is great for finding tutors, it's the best way to learn that I have found.
Duolingo is boring so I don't use it.
I used an app called Ling to learn Thai, it was like Duolingo but more fun, but I gave up when I had to pay.
Rosetta Stone was fun and exciting because of its immersion method, but also confusing for the same reason.
Anki is very useful but it became too much hard work.
I forgot... I play online games like Forge of Empires in foreign languages, they can get quite exciting and expose you to lots of reading and vocabulary.
