New York Times, Feb. 17 -- THE best way to learn a foreign language may be to surround yourself with native speakers. But if you can't manage a trip abroad the Internet and a broadband computer connection may do the job, too, bringing native speakers within electronic reach for hours of practice. Curtis J. Bonk, a professor of education at Indiana University in Bloomington, is specializing in ways to integrate online technologies into teaching. He says LiveMocha is part of an explosion of educational resources for language learning on the Web. "You no longer have to learn language as an individual in a silo somewhere, using a canned program on a CD-ROM," he said. "Instead, you have thousands of tutors to pick from -- if the first one doesn't work out, you can choose another." Read the full story.
