Some readers may be interested in Foreigncy, a new language learning resource dedicated to the needs of students and professionals already advanced in Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Hebrew, Russian, or Mandarin. Foreigncy’s method is that of systematically immersing its users in current target language news articles, by providing first an English language summary of a foreign language news article, second, a prepared set of vocabulary lists , flashcards and quizzes designed to prepare the user to read the article, and third, the article itself.
