I Like Fotobabble


Fotobabble is a super-easy application that lets you upload a photo, provide a minute audio recording to go along with it, and then you get a link and an embed code that can be used for sharing.

I wish it provided the option to grab an image off the Web instead of only uploading photos, but I guess you can’t have everything.

It’s a simple tool students can use to practice their speaking skills.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English.

Thanks to the Make Use of blog for the tip.

  1. Hi Larry–

    Thanks for the shout-out! All of us at Fotobabble have been so impressed by the creative ideas teachers and students have come up with for their “talking photos”.

    We want to keep the dialogue open, so please let us know at if you have any ideas or suggestions!

  2. ps – here’s a wonderful example of Fotobabble in the classroom from Australia!
