Languages Online

There are a large number of traffic jobs - and by traffic we mean not the flow of motor vehicles on a public road, but the flow of goods from their point of origin to the marketplace. But in order to get one, it can be helpful to learn languages - at least one or two - for, despite the adoption of English as a world language, other tongues are still widely used in business and diplomacy. And thanks to the World Wide Web, you can now take language courses online if you have no access to college classes.

languages.net

One such place is languages.net. Here you can take courses in ten languages English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Greek, Russian, Arabic, Chinese and Japanese - in a variety of countries, as well as online. With Spanish, for instance, you can study in Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, Cuba and Guatemala, and in some countries you have a further choice among language destinations in Mexico you can choose Guanajuato, Puerto Vallarta, Playa del Carmen or Oaxaca as your place of study. Intensive, super intensive, best of both and executive courses are all taught, and the classes are small, often consisting of only four students.

The costs of these courses, which depend on how many weeks you choose to take, are high, in many cases ranging as high as $2,031-four weeks of Executive Spanish costs this much.

The student who takes online courses has the advantage over the campus student of being able to set his own schedule. Right now only information on Spanish online is available at languages.net, which is an information site only; you cannot buy courses directly from them.

lingualia.com

Lingualia.com is another site for learning languages online. Here you can have your current language abilities tested by an "intelligent teacher" who goes by the name of Lingubot.

The test can be done on either English or Spanish and includes questions on a variety of grammatical points and in different formats - with some you have to choose the correct words, with others you unscramble a set of letters to form a word, and with still others you make your choice based on the given picture. Lingualia also has a mobile app that you can use to practice your language skills "on the go."

But the best thing about Lingualia is that it is a type of social networking site similar to Facebook and Twitter, where different people can share their experiences with learning and studying foreign languages. They run a set of blogs on a variety of topics, including culture, language learning and languages online.

Foreign language learning can be the key to a rewarding career in traffic - and learning in a variety of language learning destinations can open you up to the world, too!
