13 Experts Share ESL Learning Advice + Over 70 Online Resources | Education | Scoop.it

In an effort to make the English language learning process easier and faster for international ESL students, we’ve asked some of the best and most active English as a Second Language teachers and bloggers out there to answer three questions about learning languages. Many of the experts that we contacted were happy to share their advice and teaching experience to help language students avoid very common and easily avoidable pitfalls of learning a new language.

 

Also, our team did deep research online to find some of the best resources to help you learn the English language more easily.

 

The online resources section, located after the expert Q&As, includes free resources for English grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, spelling exercises, great resources on reading and writing in English, a list of websites that have collections of English slang and idioms, ESL practice worksheets, ESL podcasts, and ESL YouTube channels. Enjoy!

A New Role for Avatars: Learning Languages

A New Role for Avatars: Learning Languages | Education | Scoop.it

Most experts agree that the best way to learn a language is by immersing yourself in it.Now, with  more sophisticated technology, another theory around language learning is being tested: the use of avatars to practice speaking.

 

Alongside traditional methods, like listening, repeating, and digital flashcards, created by companies like Rosetta Stone,  Livemocha, and AccelaStudy, a few tech companies have leveraged the idea that becoming someone else helps to learn a foreign language, especially when speaking it.

" "While setting up an individual iPad is really simply, configuring and managing large numbers of the devices is a little more complicated. It's important that you get your iPad configuration correct from the start to prevent loss of data and apps later on which will cost your school money and your staff time. This page gathers together all of the information we've discovered while working with iPads, and includes best practice guidelines when deploying Apple's tablet in your school."
