Recommended authentic listening: podcasts for native-speaking teenagers, so suitable for more advanced learners, classified by topic.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, September 13, 2015 1:35 PM

Great resources for listening practice as well as for building background information outside of the textbook.  These podcasts could also be used for flipped classes.

Memrise: Vocabulary learning tool

Memrise: Vocabulary learning tool | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Martin Burrett of ICT Magic says:

"An amazing language learning site which helps learners of MFL remember words for over 200 languages by associating them with visual clues/mnemonics and score points by showing you remember the language in a variety of ways. You can listen to audio of the words you are learning. The site tracks your progress and analyses where you need improvement and it will adjust the words you are shown accordingly."

 

Shona Whyte:

A very nicely designed site which allows you to hear words, read definitions, and test yourself as you go.  Lots of languages, including EFL. In terms of acquisition, what's missing is context, but it looks like teachers can create their own courses, so contextual cues and sample sentences could be supplied that way.

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.
