The Japan Foundation welcomed people from all over Europe on 6th-8th February 2013 as we hosted a meeting for a new European Commission Funded project called Lingu@netWork.
This project aims to build on the fantastic work of the Lingu@net World Wide website, which is a multilingual portal website for language learning, that links to over 4,900 quality assured resources in 32 different languages. Teachers and language learners can access the current website in 32 different languages including Japanese. There are currently over 160 resources aimed for Japanese which teachers and learners of Japanese have used since its launch in 2011. Lingu@net World Wide was developed by 34 organisations from 25 European countries including the Japan Foundation London.
The new Ling@netWork project will be a new interactive resource, building on and linked to the existing website. The interface will be accessible through 10 different languages, and will give users a chance to interact with each other and rate their favorite resources. Please keep a look out for this fantastic website in the next year!
The Japan Foundation will continue to add new Japanese language resources to the Lingu@net World Wide website, so if you know of a high quality resources you think we should include, please click here (in English) or click here (in Japanese) to reccoment online resources.
