This WikiProject aims primarily to organize books in the area of language learning and to provide a platform for communication between editors of books related to language learning. Primarily it serves to create some kind of coherence between the main language learning books, but will also encompass those such as French For Football.
The goals of this WikiProject are to:
- provide a standard "bare bones" format for language learning books
- provide useful links for module writers
- provide a location to discuss issues relating to this section of Wikibooks
- provide community support for writing language learning texts.
Why a Languages Project?[edit source]
The goal of this WikiProject is to create some kind of general style of language learning book. Books should:
- Teach both vocabulary and grammar through a series of lessons
- Organize the lessons in a well-worked order
- Provide the lessons in tiers of proficiency
- Provide useful vocabulary lists by topic
- Include a full and organised grammar guide
- Include appendices suitable for the language e.g. a pronunciation index, lists of idioms, guide to slang etc.
Relevant Books and Pages for Authors[edit source]
- Authoring Foreign Language Textbooks
- Miskito (a state-of-the-art language learning wikibook)
- Assessment of language book pages
- Review of language teaching methods in the 20th century
