Xtranormal is a great hit with students

Maria Lupandina's curator insight, April 8, 2013 4:11 PM

Занимательная вещь, способная увлечь детей лет 10-13. Сайт переводит вас к приложению для iOS, собственно только в виде приложения всё и работает. Можно создавать короткие анимированные ролики, записывая свой голос или набирая текст. Объем текста ограничен. Говорят персонажи только по-английски. Полезно будет для напоминания о домашней работе, о различных кратких правилах или исключениях. Ученики могут использовать это приложение на уроках или дома, создавая свои мини-ролики. А им это, безусловно, понравится!

 

Только английский язык.

The Mixxer - a free educational website for language exchanges via Skype | The Mixxer | SLESL.net | Scoop.it
Barbara McQueen's insight:

Too many of the U.S. ESL programs are populated by speakers of only one native language, making it difficult to ensure that students speak only English with each other.  I'm hoping this website might help me succeed in my never-ending quest for ESL students who speak a wide variety of native languages.  For ESL student interactions in a virtual world, contact me at bmcqueen2@gmail.com.
