[seul-edu] Resources about learning concepts?


I hope this is not too off-topic, but it hard to find vauable resources in the 
net about this topic:

Does somebody know valuable learning concepts for learning foreign languages?
What is a good way to try learning foreign languages using appropriate software
Does somebody know more about proven techniques and concepts how people can
learn languages in a good way?

I am currently in the phase of adding learning and review features to the 
LingoTeach project[1] and did not find good resources, which explain different 
techniques of learning foreign languages.

Due to the fact, that those features have to follow some rules, I want to 
implement (a few) proven 'templates', so that users can start off without the
need to know, what techniques would match best for them (they will be able to
adjust the learning techniques).


	1) Show ten new words/sentences at week 0.
	2) In week 1, determine, which words/sentences the user knows now 
	   very well and which not.
	   Show the not well known words in week1 together with several new 
	3) Show some words of week 0 in week 2 together with some new and the 
	   ones the user did not know very well in week 1
	4) and so on and so on....

I do not know, how good or bad such a technique of learning is, so maybe 
someone else knows about good methods to learn and can point me to them.

We don't understand the software, and sometimes we don't understand the 
hardware, but we can *see* the blinking lights!
