Main aim?

To form a methodology and develop a platform in order to promote language learning through informal language learning communities.

Role of the Language Communities

- Each community is devoted to a single language and specifically focuses on informal learning methodologies.

- The users of the platform participate in a language experience with no preset language outcomes but orientate their own language acquisition through heuristic language building, online socialization and enculturation and a playful practise in relation to widely used social media.

- They utilise peer informal teaching methods for all the languages offered.

Methodology

Basic concepts

- Learning happening as a result of online social interaction.

- No «teachers» and «students»: there are learners that are willing to learn a language, other learners and native speakers willing to support them in this learning process and moderators that coordinate the activities of the community.

- Users are able to share educational material with each other.

Project's Basic outcomes

- A social network community of learning for users who wish to learn or help others learn.

- A platform that includes multimedia resources and language learning materials.

- A handbook proposing a model for online language learning in informal learning communities.
