Informal Learning and Languages

  • Geoffrey Sockett
Part of the New Language Learning and Teaching Environments book series (NLLTE)


The Online Informal Learning of English is best understood as a complex range of internet-based activities. Since the term “complex” will be used frequently in the coming chapters, it is perhaps useful to remind ourselves that it means interconnected, as in a complex of buildings, rather than just complicated or difficult. As such it is often used along with the word “system”, to underline the fact that many different factors, in this case factors in language learning, are interconnected and so influence one another as learning takes place.
