Car Zen is a private site that is supposed to open to the public in a few days. However, if you go to this TechCrunch and click on the “Learn More” link in a widget you see, you’ll be taken directly to the site.
Car Zen, in a very visual way, asks you a series of questions to help you determine which car is the best one for you.
There’s plenty of opportunity for vocabulary development, and cars are certainly a high-interest topic among English Language Learners and all students. Using a site like this fits into my perspective that one of the best ways to help students learn English is to find topics that they’re interested in and create a situation where they need to use English to learn it.
Once the site goes public later this week I’ll put a link on my website under Transportation.
