Perligo: Read a Language, Learn a Language

To build a marvelous castle, you need more than just a few building blocks. Despite their numerous benefits, reading and listening tasks are often de-emphasised in the language classroom. This is especially problematic for higher ed foreign language learners, who are expected to communicate competently with their peers abroad, limited target language exposure notwithstanding. To solve this problem, Perligo turns to the largest, most comprehensive source of language there is - the Web. By helping teachers use relevant, authentic online content in their classrooms, Perligo offers language learners countless blocks with which to build their linguistic castles.
