Phraseum - language learning online

Phraseum - language learning online | ICT tools for EFL | Scoop.it

The Web offers huge opportunities to improve any foreign language you’re learning, from news stories, blog posts, comments and all that content. So, find sites with your favourite topics and read them regularly. Phraseum will help you save and organize all useful sentences you come across while reading, in order to learn them later.
You can organize your clips by tags (situation, meaning …) and personal categories (your projects, meetings …)
You can also search for and re-save phrases that others have saved
or discover phrases that match the topics of your interests in your Phrase feed.

Vocabulary builing tool with a web clipper that can be added to a browser for quick additions to a tagged phrasebook - looks like a very interesting use of browser technology that promotes learner autonomy

Amadeu Marin's curator insight, June 7, 2014 8:23 AM

Excellent idea! A fantastic tool to build up a collection of useful chunks or phrases around topics, situations, etc.

 

LEARNING TIP:

Phraseum provides what they call a 'clipping button' that you

drag onto your browser bookmark bar. Then, while you're reading online, you can highlight a piece of text (collocations, chunks, idioms, etc.) you want to clip, then hit the Phraseum clipping button to save and categorize the phrase into your account to learn or use later.

 

You can also share the phrases and phrasebooks you create and subscribe to other people's.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a really fantastic tool for the collaborative learning of phrases and collocations. Every language learner should be using this.

La presentadora mencionó un estudio hecho reciente por PollNation que examinó la adquisición/aprendizaje del lenguas con el uso de flashcards en aparatos mobiles versus los flashcards tradicionales hecho por mano en papel, por ejemplo. El estudio encontró que los flashcards mobiles con ciertas aplicaciones para iPhone, iPad, Android etc. produjeron resultados mejores y positivos que los flashcards tradicionales. Este es solo un ejemplo de cómo el aprendizaje de lenguas con la tecnología, particularmente con los teléfonos inteligentes o tablets, promueve la adquisición. Los flashcards de aplicaciones son inteligentes y tienen la capacidad de recordar tus palabras, tu progreso, o por ejemplo, notar ciertas palabras para practicar más. Son capaces de proveer apoyo del aprendizaje individual de manera práctica, fácil, lógica, y portable.
