WeSpeke: telecollaboration opportunities | TELT | Scoop.it

We are delighted to announce that WeSpeke has been very favorably reviewed by The Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO).  To reference the review please go to the CALICO site at:  http://journals.sfu.ca/CALICO/index.php/calico/article/view/1002/892
 
In addition, to address the needs of our user community, WeSpeke is now offering a freeconcierge matching service for teachers.  If you have ever thought; “I teach _____ and would like to connect my students with native _____ speakers.”, then this service is for you.  We will personally introduce you to your foreign counterpart at a university or school where a relationship already exists through international education, study abroad or an exchange program.  This service is intended to give you a free resource to connect your students with their peers in the target language to practice your instruction.  If you are interested in the WeSpeke concierge matching service please reply via email here.  Please indicate if you have a university or school preference.
 
Together we’ll make language and cultural education a priority and give language learners the very best resources available to become fluent, improve their cultural understanding and perhaps develop lifelong international friendships.
 
WeSpeke is now available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese.  If you know of any colleagues who might be interested in using WeSpeke in or around their teaching, why not forward them this email, or send them a link to our new video?  A free Teachers Resource Guide is available here.

Extensive Watching: David Deubelbeiss blog post | TELT | Scoop.it

“Extensive Watching“. I’d like to outline this important concept for language learning here and get your own feedback, opinion, thoughts. (and this compliments what I’ve also termed, “Narrow Watching“.

Shona Whyte's insight:

My colleague Geoff Sockett at the University of Strasbourg has been looking at this as part of informal learning http://prismelangues.u-strasbg.fr/uploads/media/Eurocall_handout_01.pdf  Interesting and important topic - what are learners getting out of this type of exposure to English, and is there a role for teaching to help them get more?

The site is especially designed for learners from Vietnam and Indonesia, since there are also translations in these languages
Helen Baumung's comment, January 20, 2015 11:10 AM
this australian network website provides lots of videos that can help improving your english skills. Basics like how to use plurals or pronouns. But i don´t really know how stuff like "finding homes for unwanted dogs" can help improving the language (besides of listening to the language, but you could just watch a movie in English then ;-) ) Anyway, clear website, easy to navigate and find the episodes of english bites
Tobias Mielke's comment, July 14, 2015 11:32 AM
Australia Network created the page in cooperation with IELTS. The Topics are up to date and well organized, they provide you with Information, videos and tasks and answers. It can be very usefull for English teachers because the given PDFs reduce the time you need to prepare a lesson. Also students have the chance to search for topics they are interested in and get a lot of Information, tips and tasks to do on their own.

Shona Whyte's curator insight, May 12, 2013 12:04 PM

VOA Special English - karaoke-style videos where each word is highlighted in turn as the speaker reads.  This one is an agricultural report.

 

While these videos certainly support autonomous language practice, some imagination is required to make them effective for learning.  I suppose minimally a teacher would need to make sure the text was comprehensible, but I'm not sure what a good task or learning activity would look like either.
