As a language learner, I have always had a very traditional, pen-and-paper approach to learning a new language (English included). I have played around with websites and apps like Livemocha, Duolingo, and even BBC language pages, as well as many other obscure sources, but those things would never stay with me for more than a few weeks. Soon I would be back to purchasing grammars, dictionaries and lots of pen and paper.
However, lately I've been thinking about the role of technology, and the fact that nowadays, more so than when I was growing up, people are constantly "plugged in", and doing everything from work and study to self-help and dating on a computer. What's also different now is that I've had some experience actually working on digital technology, so I'm eager to see if there is a way to apply my skills and come up with something people would find useful for learning a language.
So my question to you is - do you use technology when studying English? If you do, what do you like and dislike about it? And also, is there some kind of technology you wish existed, but doesn't right now, to help you learn English better?
Many thanks in advance!
