FREE FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEXTBOOKS

Page history last edited by SP 1 week, 4 days ago

 

NOTE:

MORE FREE LANGUAGE RESOURCES MAY BE FOUND VIA COERLL: THE CENTER FOR OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES AND LANGUAGE LEARNING  and  OERTX, both offered through the University of Texas at Austin.

 

OERTX is yet another incredible, highly useful resource that includes numerous foreign language texts, materials, resources, and even flashcards.   As an example, in the OERTX Search Engine, type Portuguese or Chinese or Spanish (or any other language) to find related materials, texts, and resources in these languages.

OERTX offers truly helpful and amazing resources to teachers and students of foreign languages.

 

 

The National Foreign Language Center (NFLC) e-learning portal from the University of Maryland is also incredibly useful to Foreign Language learners. This site does require a login. The NFLC's Portal lists the languages available.   ("Access to the portal is free. Simply create an account and you'll have immediate access to all of the content.")

 

 

Many other resources are now newly available from the University of Ottawa's OER by Discipline Guide.

The sections on "Modern Languages and Literatures"  and  "Official Languages and Bilingualism" are simply marvelous.

 

 

KU's Open Educational Resources in the Humanities includes many languages -- with readings, questions for students, and resources, including texts.     (University of Kansas = KU)

 

 

TEXTBOOKS IN SPANISH ARE NOW AVAILABLE VIA LIBRETEXTS (Many subjects are covered: from Mathematics to Medicine to GeoSciences to Social Sciences to Business to Chemistry to Engineering. More subjects will be covered in future editions.)
