It can be very challenging to learn a foreign language on your own. Simply reading a workbook doesn’t prepare you for living or working in an environment where you’re using an unfamiliar language. Such a dynamic experience requires interactive and engaging instruction. And e-learning is a perfect medium for it!
With an authoring app like Storyline, you can use characters, games, multimedia, and other course elements to build an immersive language learning experience. Here are some examples of modules from the E-Learning Heroes community to inspire your own work:
- See how an animated instructor makes learning Spanish more fun in this example by Magda Diaz.
- Colorful illustrations and cute feedback slides make this English language-learning assessment by Ridvan Saglam fun for learners of all ages.
- This creative drag-and-drop interaction by Tracy Rainford helps learners pick up basic Spanish vocabulary while driving home an important message.
- Tracy Carroll offers several approaches for testing French language skills in this course.
