Second Language - Basics for Beginners and Beyond

It has never been more important or easier to learn a second language (L2)—or a third or a fourth. Globalization has linked people and economies together as never before, making the ability to communicate in different languages and settings both a key to success in business and vital to global citizenship. Command of another language is a highly marketable skill that will open the door to a wide range of professional opportunities.
English is increasingly becoming the language of the Internet—and knowing the basics will help you stay plugged into the information revolution. But at the same time, the Internet also makes it possible like never before to communicate with people who speak other languages that are in high demand, such as Mandarin and Arabic, as well to preserve smaller languages and dialects that are in danger of extinction.
The role of technology in helping you achieve your language goals can be significant when used strategically: The range of products and delivery systems is both rich and overwhelming. The goal of this Knowledge Pill is to give you an overview of the technologies available to help you learn or polish your language skills—and help you decide which ones are best for you.
