Ludwig - Find your sentence

Ludwig - Find your sentence | CQ_dig_ reading & writing tools | Scoop.it
Find the perfect English sentence to express each one of your ideas and write like a pro
Carolyn Quarterman's insight:
This site allows you to type a phrase or collocation, of any length it seems, and see search results from articles and pages across the internet that use the phrase, or a variation of it. Ideally, then, students can see if they're using the phrase correctly or in the typical context. It seems very promising for upper or advanced students as perhaps a supplemental resource. The article about the site is interesting, too:  https://techcrunch.com/2016/08/05/online-linguistic-search-engine-ludwig-helps-get-your-english-on/

Good for reading, but also for listening and pronunciation. I have my pronunciation students use this site for "tracking" or imitating the rhythm and intonation of the story teller. Learners can pause the story, repeat, and then continue. Closed captions also possible.

Politeness checker

Politeness checker | CQ_dig_ reading & writing tools | Scoop.it

Foxtype helps you write in a more polite, friendly tone. We rate the politeness of your sentences. We also help re-write your sentences to sound more polite.


Via Nik Peachey
Carolyn Quarterman's insight:

Could be interesting idea for raising students' awareness in politeness registers and discussing things that raise (or lower) the politeness level,, but not convinced it would work well as a tool for writing politely.

This looks good but it is not free. Universities already offer it for free to their students.

Edgar Mata's curator insight, July 23, 2015 2:56 PM

Para que los alumnos no "copien y peguen".
Esta herramienta detecta diversas formas de plagio, muy buena.

 

Nunca fue necesario que los alumnos escribieran a mano para evitar el copy-paste, ahora menos que nunca, con tantas herramientas disponibles, es preferible que el trabajo esté en formato electrónico par buscar, más rápido, de dónde obtuvieron la información.
