Find open access research on teaching modern foreign languages with Yazik Open

An inititative of an expert from the UK LLASYazik Open has the potential to become a welcome addition to our SLA research search options, especially if you do not want to run into a pay wall after finding an interesting abstract.

The currently sole contributor seems to be admin – same problem I had when I started a language learning resource links database in 1998, when will this change?

The keyword list looks somewhat rudimentary – when I worked with LLAS on a language learning resource metadata schema, complexity led to a grinding halt.

So the need to bring some of the advances in technologically fostered collaboration and information exchange to domain-specific fields like SLA certainly remains to be felt here.

    Hi Thomas
    Thanks for talking about YazikOpen so positively. Just to clarify I work for LLAS 4 days a week, but YazikOpen is run in my own time and not affiliated to LLAS in any way.
    Best wishes
