New Blog on Teaching Language in Second Life

August 1, 2007, marked the debut of Avatar Languages, a blog dedicated to the study and theory of teaching language using the virtual world Second Life. Recent posts include links to places to go in Second Life to eavesdrop (and talk with) native languages speakers, teaching English as a second language in Second Life, and creating Second Life-themed webquests. Check the archives on eClassics for past blog posts on Virtual Roma and Greek sites in Second Life.

To fill the void of Latin speaking/listening in Second Life, Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers will be producing a "sandbox" for teacher-moderated Latin conversations (either via chat or voice) in Second Life in the next few months in support of its forthcoming Latin textbook series, Latin for the New Millennium. All Latin students, regardless of what books they are using, will be welcome to come and practice.
