About the book: Beginning to learn a completely new language can be a daunting prospect. Success with Languages is designed to help all students develop the skills they need to become an effective language learner and to make the most of language study.
Written by experienced language teachers at the Open University, this book offers undergraduates and postgraduates crucial and practical advice on important areas such as:
* choosing a language and study programme
* setting personal goals for language learning and monitoring progress
* using ICT to support language learning.
Each of the ten chapters features a number of exercises in order to help students assess the ways they learn and consider where improvements can be made, making the most of media available and how to use resources effectively.
