Hausa Online

Learning Hausa (and other less commonly taught languages) using the Internet

LangSource and LangNet – two valuable resources for LCTLs

Posted by hausaonline on Sunday, November 25, 2007

Are you looking for course and self-study material in Hausa or some other less commonly taught language? A good place to start looking for it is at LangSource, a searchable database for language resources offered by the National Foreign Language Center at the University of Maryland. Currently, the LangSource catalogue offers resources in Arabic, Chinese, German, Hausa, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Quechua, Spanish, Tamil, and Yoruba.

They have also developed LangNet, “a state-of-the-art online foreign language learning and maintenance system”. In a message on the H-Hausa discussion list, they have recently asked for educated Hausa speakers who are willing to contribute to a new Hausa project. Part of this would be creating online activities for Hausa learners.

Here is a link to their message
