Online Language Exchange for Learning English
If you want to become fluent in English, you need to study vocabulary and also learn sentences and stories. After you learn
lots of language you then need to practice. A great way to do this is through online language exchange. Teacher Joe has
given some good general advice in a previous article. (Go to
http://www.teacherjoe.us/Exchange.html to read it.)
To do online language exchange, there are some sites that are very good and some that are not so
good. I think two of the best sites are My Language Exchange
and Lingo Zone ("lingo" is a slang word for language). The big
advantage of My Language Exchange is that
you can find language partners not only for English,but also for more than 100 other languages. It
is a site that has been recommended
by many experts as a great site for learning English. Lingo Zone is similar to My Language Exchange
and also includes some
games to help you learn English.
Besides specific web sites, you can try chat software such as MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger. However,
the best software for language learners is called Pal Talk. It allows you to set up your own room or visit
rooms that have been specifically set up for language learning. You can not only meet other students, you can
also meet teachers from around the world!
If you follow Teacher Joe's advice, I'm sure you'll get lets of practice and make progress fast. Good luck
and have fun!
