Nowadays there is still topical problem concerning “learning” foreign language in spite of presence of great number of specializing organizations/companies and teaching programs.
We all from our birth hear speech in one or several languages at the same time. A person, who surrounded by that “speech” atmosphere, voluntarily or not does take in information flow – in other words, adapts to and gets used to it. As a result this or these languages become for a person native. It all becomes possible because that person heard speech and saw action corresponded to that speech and therefore there was drawn analogy, association between these two processes subconsciously meanwhile no one learned grammar that is theory of language or languages. Thus such kind of process makes it possible for everyone not to transform it all into “mathematics”.
Being based on the previously mentioned principle, I suggest designing Internet portal where it would be possible to recreate above “speech” atmosphere. Internet portal would be a sort of “virtual world”. For rising of involvement level of visitors of such virtual world and consequently visit effectiveness level it would be better, in my opinion, to represent it as unique online game, where each visitor starts his/her “virtual life” from babyhood. As in real life, during growing-up a “baby” will be hearing, seeing and of course reacting to what is going on around and above all everyone will be facing different situations. The main aim of such recreation is to give people an opportunity to speak foreign/new language(s) and not just to “learn” as we all got used to do.
