Reddit as a Medium for Foreign Language Leraning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This work discusses how Reddit, one of the world’s largest online communities (and the procrastinator’s favorite website), enables foreign language learning. I look at this from several lenses including ecological/dialogical language learning and socio-psychological motivation theory. The results are positive, showing motivational, social, and proficiency gains. Come, smile, and have some fun while looking at language acquisition from a new perspective.
