palabea

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 20, 2008 by ruyoung

palabea is an online community to learn languages and cultures from fellow people (palabeans?). through chat, audio/video lectures, writing, content sharing, virtual classrooms, podcats, language exchanges, and meetups, individuals can learn from over 130 languages from abkhazia to zulu.

there has been an onslaught of online learning comunities that as brought learning 2.0 to the forefront, communities where each person is both a student and a teacher, and i am pleased to see a learning network for language that is structured so well.

if you’d like to teach me norwegian, please send me a hello.  i’m ruyoung there too.
