Orly Rachamim's curator insight, November 11, 2013 12:35 PM

This site contains links to apps for mobile devices that can be used by language learners and teachers.  Many of the mobile apps listed here have a web version as well and can be used to enhance different language skills even if tablet or mobile devices are not available.  Twitter, Facebook and Skype are all social networking apps that language learners can use to practice their written an oral language.  These can be applied to any new language being learned.  Students who have access to these devices (either personal or at school) are able to use the tools independently to supplement the learning in the classroom.  Lack of access to the devices may be a disadvantage to the students unless some of the video conferencing sessions are coordinated by the teacher for the entire class.

ICT for Language Teachers: The French Digital Kitchen

ICT for Language Teachers: The French Digital Kitchen | Computer Assisted Language Learning | Scoop.it

The French Digital Kitchen is an environment in which a computer in the kitchen communicates with students, instructing them step-by-step in how to cook French cuisine while teaching aspects of French language at the same time, namely the essential vocabulary and grammar that are used in such an environment. The underlying pedagogy is Task-Based Learning (TBL), an established approach to teaching foreign languages whereby learners are prompted by instructions in the target language to carry out specified tasks.

Lara Lomicka Anderson, a University of South Carolina professor who encourages her students to use Twitter in French classes, is to receive an honorary award, Ordre des Palmes Académiques, from the French government. Anderson is the author of a book about using social networking and online study to advance foreign language instruction and has promoted new technologies for foreign language teaching techniques. Anderson says the use of Twitter in the classroom allows students to develop conversation skills and build a sense of communal language learning in and out of the classroom.

Great idea. Thank you for sharing.
Elizabeth B's curator insight, November 2, 2013 11:51 AM

Lyrics Training is a really neat site that allows users to search music videos for L2  (six languages are available). You choose your skills level, then as the music video plays, you type missing words into the lyrics that appear below the video. The site records your stats. What a motivating and fun way to increase fluency, spelling, and listening skills.

Verbling Links Up Language Learners With Native Speakers Through Live Video Chat - TechCrunch | Computer Assisted Language Learning | Scoop.it
The Verbling site allows you to sign up and choose the language you want to learn. Once you join the site during a session time, you are automatically paired with a language speaker who is fluent in the language you wish to learn. The site encourages users to talk to a number of different speakers within each session. So if you speak French and want to learn English, you’ll be paired up with a native English speaker who wants to learn French. You start in one language and halfway through the video session, a timer tells you when to switch to the other.
