One of the great things about studying a foreign language is there are so many different ways to study it apart from boring textbook work. Whether it’s striking up a conversation with your waiter in a foreign language, making a penpal from a country of interest, or attempting to read a magazine in a foreign language, you’ll never run out of ways to increase your knowledge and, if you have the right attitude, enjoy yourself immensely.
That’s one of the reasons I created Language On Track – so I could make a list of different ways of learning a new language and share this information with others. The site’s database has around ~100 activities, or as I call them goals, which are suggested based on the your level, which is in turn calculated based on the information entered in your profile. There are several different categories including Culture, Grammar, Reading, and Writing, so you choose your activity depending on what skill you want to improve.
The entire system is free to anyone who creates a account. There is an email address which is asked during the account creation process, but I’ve disabled email address verification so if you are concerned about giving away your address feel free to put in a fake address. The only drawback is that if you’ve forgot your password there is no way to get it back.
