There's freedom at WUaS - building on MIT Open Course Ware as academic standard - and making possible open, wiki- Teaching & Learning in a free & friendly way ... invitation to add a subject ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/ - a people-ideas opportunity :)
People are freely teaching & learning online in so many ways
... and WUaS will aggregate these as a wiki-metadirectory, in 3000-8000 languages
... Wikipedia, the online wiki-encyclopedia, by way of comparison, is in around 272 languages ...
are there 8000 languages??? Wow!
... There are 6,900 and some languages, according to 'The Ethnologue'
plus human-invented languages, 'dead' languages, (computer languages, etc.).
World University & School -
will help to identify ALL of them, and wiki-facilitate teaching & learning resources in them, too :)
Invitation to add a language, and a school :)
Here's The Ethnologue's web site - http://www.ethnologue.com
World Univ & Sch would also like to build on Google Translate and 2 or 3 other parallel projects to develop a Universal Translator, based on the WUaS Languages' page http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Languages :)
Good intro to linguistics? See World University & School Linguistics' subject - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Linguistics - and particularly Victoria Fromkin et al.'s 'Introduction to Language' :)
