…For Teaching ELL, ESL, & EFL

Brilliant Use Of The Web For Language Teaching!

| 1 Comment

Carla Arena and Ronaldo Lima, Jr., EFL teachers in Brazil who have participated in our International Sister Classes Project, are having their students use the web to help refine their English skills and to help others learn some Portuguese words. I hope you’ll help them.

They are using VoiceThread to have students explain and demonstrate — in English — different Portuguese words.  They are then inviting visitors to repeat those words on the VoiceThread, and then promise to provide subsequent feedback to speakers — again on the VoiceThread (thought that kind of feedback might be problematic if they get a lot of people participating).

Go to the Portuguese Challenge and try it out. This is a great idea that any language class can do, too.

Anybody can listen to it.  If you want to record, though, you have to have previously registered with VoiceThread, or register then (it’s free).
