Hi, I am trying the lean startup method I am a software developer that likes to create a useful program for learning languages. The idea is that a Native speaker will create a thread on some topic that is interesting for him and write a short story, let's say in English. Other students that are learning English will join the discussion and speak with him on a given topic. Will this kind of learning be interesting? What do you think? Would you give a try to this website/mobile app if it would exist? For native speakers it can be something like freelance, so they will earn some money or get some cookies... Thank you in advance for your opinion! King regards, Anton
I'd like to share one of my favourite programs to measure the level of knowledge in some popular European languages. Not an app but I guess I can put it here among apps. I've been using it since ages, and although it has its drawbacks (who doesn't?), it's one of the best free programs to estimate a language level. Not very pretty when it comes to interface but what matters for me is functionality. Dialang needs Internet connection and Java. It has tests checking your reading, writing, listening, grammar and vocabulary, and later on evaluating them against the European Framework (from A1 to C2). You can choose from Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Icelandic, Irish-gaelic, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. Here's the link to download it: http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/researchenterprise/dialang/about I hope it'll be useful for you.
Just found out about a free program for PCs called Buensoft Lingua and it looks very good. Has anyone tried it?
