Language learning


Jump to: navigation, search

OLPC is working in many countries and languages. Language learning, particularly of major world languages, is a common need for early education. The XO holds the promise to make language learning accessible to many for the first time. See also Literacy.



DynEd produces a number of popular language-learning courses, mainly for learning English, which run in Sugared Wine on the XO. See their article for contact information and details.


For more basic skills training, including literacy and ESL, see the discussion at Avallain.


Colingo, a web-based language learning nonprofit, is working to create free ESL videos and other materials for OLPC.
