I recently learned about an intriguing new web application that has been developed by a student who was learning a second language (not English).  It seems like it can be adapted for English Language Learners, but, since I haven’t tried it yet, I just don’t know how workable it is.

It’s called Language Dialer.  It’s supposed to allow language learners to phone in and answer questions from a native speaker of the language that is being.  The student, or a teacher, can then listen to a recording of your responses.

It seems like it might be a useful way to encourage English use outside of a classroom.  I’ve placed the link on my Teacher’s Page under Audio.

You can also read an article talking about the application written by its developer.

I’d be very interested in hearing from people who have tried this out.
