As you know, Speaklikethem.com is a platform to improve language skills, not to start learning a language. Beyond the well-known e-learning sites, there is a site we’ve just discovered for those who want to learn the basics fast and in a fun way: on www.gamesforlanguage.com you’ll dive right into language learning with its effective play-and-learn method.
