IWTYAL 039: How to find materials to learn minority languages

itunesButtonAlex asks: “How should one go about gathering together language learning materials when there are none?”

In this episode:

Here are my suggestions for finding materials for minority languages:

  1. Reach out to people who have learnt the language before – there will be more than you think. Use Google to search for people, groups and blogs
  2. Even if there is little material, use what you can find. You can get far with little.
  3. Go to the country. Not always practical, but the best thing you could possibly do.
  4. Create your own materials by contacting native speakers and/or travelling to the country. This is a fantastic project and a great service to the community.
