Language learning space Education Services Australia (ESA) on behalf the Australian Government Department of Education, has developed a National Virtual Language Space called the Language Learning Space (LLS). The LLS is a key deliverable of the Supporting the Australian Curriculum Online (SACOL) initiative, which provides support for teachers nationally, to develop flexible learning approaches to student learning and to integrate digital resources into their classroom practice. The Language Learning Space (www.lls.edu.au) presents a visually engaging graphic interface utilising game-based modality to engage students in language learning. The LLS currently provides support for Chinese language learners with Indonesian and Japanese versions being added later this year. These languages were chosen by the Australian Government as strategic priorities. The Chinese Language Learning Space was launched on July 1st To date, over 2000 Chinese language teachers and over 6000 students nationally have registered on the LLS.
