Resources for language learning

Resources to support language learning.

One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.❞ ‒Frank Smith

or I would prefer to add

“Three or Four or more, open many more doors along the way” – Liz Foxwell

This morning I put on the blog that Scholastic USA had won an award for their reading books. What reading book or books would you recommend?

Here are some resources worth considering for developing Children and language learning.

EMASUK – EMASUK.com have a range of resources to support English as an additional language from a resource vault which teachers can download from 24/7, to talking technologies including Talking Tutor, Text Tutor and the award-winning Two Can Talk. Their most recent offering is a hand-held unit which can be carried around easily and speaks out in a choice of 25 languages.  See a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CU3AnuwV24E

and a video to show their award-winning bilingual book called Pip.
