Nice post on using corpora for ELT without being a corpus linguist or a tech whiz.

Stanislav Okhvat's curator insight, April 13, 2013 12:09 AM

A nice introduction to corpora and concordance tools and how they are useful in teaching languages and, by extension, translation.

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.

Vocabulary Exercises for the AWL

 

This site now contains 285 gap-fill exercises to review and recycle the general word families contained within the AWL. These exercises can be found on each Sublist page. Gap-fill exercises are an excellent way to recycle vocabulary through different contexts and can be used to broaden the student's understanding of the range of meaning of vocabulary. The online format of the exercises allows students to get immediate feedback on their answers. Students can work throughfive different exercises for each word family in the AWL. Many of these exercises include different derivations (parts of speech) for the given word. Students are encouraged to complete the exercises for a given level before proceeding to the next level.

Nice language activity for all levels of learners using http://www.just-the-word.com.

 

Leo Selivan, British Council:

"Very often students know the meaning of a word but don’t know how to use it correctly. This is often because they don’t know what words go with what other words, i.e. collocations. For example, students are familiar with the word party but may not know the verbs have or give that go with it and, as a result, say *make a party. This activity helps students expand their collocational knowledge of the nouns they already know, but it can be adapted for other parts of speech."
