The beginnings of Audio-Lingua

In September 2007, MP3 experiments started in France and French teachers looked for audio files for beginners. The CRDP agreed with the creation of a "sound bank" and gave money to find human ressources who could develop such a platform. Audio-Lingua opened in 2008 with four languages and in four languages : English, German, Spanish and French. Other languages were then added, among which some French regional languages. From the start, the aim was to create an international , collaborative website for all users : people learning a foreign language and not just for teachers. Audio-Lingua offers audio files, no transcription or teaching material.
