Yesterday I happened upon a website that looks very useful. I have begun to explore it. Its full name is Multimedia Educational Resources for Language Online Teaching, or MERLOT for short. It is a huge site. I am particularly interested in its World Languages Community Portal.
I know, it’s a mouthful. Thus far, I’ve only started to explore the resources for Japanese (of which there are 99).
One useful link led me to a set of cultural interviews with international business executives in their native languages. You can listen to them, as well as read the transcripts and translations below.
