International Web-based Language Learning(1) 

The purpose of this document was to locate and evaluate commercial and non-commercial providers of online language learning courses on the Internet. Finding such materials was a challenge, and the first impression was confirmed even after in-depth investigation: truly web-based language courses are still rare. What is often advertised as online language learning classes - especially inthe entries in search engines – often turns out to be merely a collection of language study materials and loosely linked grammar or vocabulary exercises rather than a complete course.Web-based courses currently on offer differ greatly in quality. There are a few serious providers who have easily accessible information regarding the content and structure of their courses.
