Abstract: The Open Educational Resources (OER) movement is overgrowing over the last 15 years, as many institutions adopt the idea of openness and universal access to educational content. Thus, the research and educational material must be open to everyone interested, including students, adult learners, teachers, professionals, managers, and policymakers. With this in mind, the creation and use of OER is a current educational practice for educators around the world. This manuscript aims to provide an overview of all the core elements for creating, using, and sharing quality multilingual and inter-active OERs for Language Education. Specifically, the paper provides an extensive summary of existing language OERs and Open Educational Prac-tices (OEPs), including some important definitions, highlighting the most significant characteristics and challenges in adopting OERs for educational purposes. This review will help language teachers, students, and researchers to create, share, and use quality multilingual and interactive OERs for lan-guage learning in their teaching practices.
