2Tangos Free Tandem Learning Service

Teddy Bear Clip Art

 2Tangos uses what is known as tandem, a learning system that brings two people together who exchange their knowledge on various topics. I teach you French if you teach me how to sow, etc.

[…]

2Tango is currently free, with no commissions or payments involved.  Ilan Dorot, founder of 2Tango, told Israeli website Newsgeek that the company is not aspiring to charge money for the service or be profitable at this point. 2Tangos started as an idea among friends, he said (Dorot and four others located in Tel Aviv, Dublin and Vienna). One of them needed help learning Chinese and came up with the idea of a barter-based learning system that focuses on geographical locations.

The Benefits of Bilingualism

patrickyan:

7-month-old babies exposed to two languages from birth were compared with peers raised with one language. In an initial set of trials, the infants were presented with an audio cue and then shown a puppet on one side of a screen. Both infant groups learned to look at that side of the screen in anticipation of the puppet. But in a later set of trials, when the puppet began appearing on the opposite side of the screen, the babies exposed to a bilingual environment quickly learned to switch their anticipatory gaze in the new direction while the other babies did not.

I miss learning psychology and neuroscience.
