New technologies and language learning
Nowadays, technology provides us with a great amount of information and lots of resources to obtain it, especially through the Internet. So, learning independently is supposed to be an easy, free and widespread activity in modern society. There are lots of web pages in which you can improve your grammatical or vocabulary knowledge in nearly any language without attending physically to any lecture or course. Anyway, there are also some potential disadvantages: some sources can be called anti-learning sources, because of their methods and the information which they contain. You will be risking failing if you trust any web page!
The conclusion is we shouldn’t underestimate the power of the Internet, but we had better to be careful while using it to learn.
