As a complement to my top 3 resources for Non-Native Speakers of English, the following resources can help Native English Speakers learn a foreign language at a higher level. If you are applying to a program that requires proficiency in multiple languages (here’s looking at you INSEAD!) or you want to shake off the cobwebs before you meet up with a business colleague overseas, give these a try.
Lang-8, (lang-8.com), uses Wiki-style software to allow you to keep a journal in a foreign language – which native speakers of that language then correct for you. Give back by helping a Non-Native Speaker of English correct his/her journal. Teach wisely!
GLOSS lessons, for English speakers learning a new language (more advanced), are developed for independent learners to provide them with the learning/teaching tools for improving their foreign language skills. This is contemporary news oriented and very serious. You won’t see lessons on speaking to strangers in a cafe. You will see lessons on understanding the Black Market Arms trade in Russia.
