Phraseum - language learning online

Phraseum - language learning online | Languages 2.0 | 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.

A clipper tool that looks to have great potential for learners to use the web systematically for vocabulary expansion

carldowse's curator insight, January 18, 5:18 AM

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, 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.

Here is the presentation about DUOLINGO that I used last week at the CCSU Conference for Language Teachers. I am using it this semester with my first year Spanish courses as part of the homework, done outside of class, but it can also be a good activity for class, while students wait for other students to finish other projects.
