TELLConsult joined the EU project TELL-OP.


We gladly support this initiative as it focuses on two themes which we consider highly relevant (and yet still, IMO, underestimated) for language learning: Data Driven Learning (DDL) paired -in this day and age - to the potential of Mobile Language learning (MALL).
