Language learning, especially during times of stress, can help to reduce anxiety and promote better mental health by giving us something to concentrate on rather than the current crisis.
With many of us restricted to our homes because of the social-distancing restrictions put in place to combat COVID-19, online language learning has become more and more popular.
So, if you’re thinking of learning another language, here are some free online resources to help you on your way.
The Live Lingua Project was put together by founder Ray Blakne, who used a compilation of free language learning resources from the US Peace Corps and Defense Language Institute as its base.
Access to the archive is totally free and users can choose from over 130 languages and look through study guides, audio files, and even complete textbooks.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, better known as MIT, has made great efforts to supply all of its course materials online for the free use of anyone who wants to learn.
This includes resources from their language department and features courses in Chinese, Japanese, French, German, and Spanish.
Along with the resources available, MIT also provides a detailed study plan to help those learning online to structure their own home course.
Internet Polyglot is a website dedicated to helping language learners better understand foreign languages by providing them a way to memorize words and their meanings.
The site has study materials for twenty-one languages and those materials are broken down into units that will be immediately recognizable to anyone who has ever studied a language at school or college.
Arabic is becoming an increasingly popular language amongst online learners and the Madinah Arabic language course offers Arabic instruction for free.
Focusing on both spoken and written Arabic, the Madinah course guides students from the first introductions to the language through an advanced beginner level.
The British Broadcasting Service (BBC) offers comprehensive online courses in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, and Greek.
These courses are taken from similar language courses used in universities across the UK and are well designed, very complete, and easy to follow.
The benefits of taking an ESL course are clear. By improving your English skills you gain better access to education, a better earning potential, a better social life and even better results from healthcare. We here at Northwest Community College are committed to enhancing our student’s lives, which is why we are proud to offer our ESL courses free of charge to our students and to extend that offer to their families.
Our seasoned language teachers are experienced in working with international students from all over the world and are there to help you get the most from your classes. To help your lessons fit in with your work and home life we also offer day and weekend classes. If you are interested in taking advantage of this excellent opportunity then call one of our ESL councilors today on (702) 403-1592.
