Abstract

This study proposes the design of a new learning system based on Multilanguage and blended learning strategies. The multilanguage blended learning system (MBLS) is an integrated LMS technology with translation technology. The MBLS was designed for students who were restricted by an English language barrier in acquiring new knowledge. The purpose of MBLS was to assist students in improving students' learning through the use of multilanguage blended learning environment (MBLE). Freeware software which included Moodle 2.7, Google Chrome web browser, Google Dictionary Chrome 4.0.2 and Imtranslator, has been used for designing MBLS. It is expected that the MBLE may facilitate, engage, and motivate students in learning content from the English medium instruction. The MBLS can also be extended to deliver content in languages other than English.
