Language Learning Online

Learning a new language can be difficult. Luckily, there are thousands of people learning to speak other languages, and there are places online where you can join in and learn with others. Below you can find 5 examples of online communities dedicated to language learning. Click on the images below to start exploring these communities! 

Please Note: When joining any forum or online community, it is important to read, understand, and follow any rules that the administrators and the community have set. Being respectful, following rules, and remaining considerate of the time and effort community leaders have put into establishing these valuable spaces is key to becoming a part of the community.
