Useful as a filler or for quick finishers.

jillyfrees's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:09 AM

Ooh - this looks really handy. The trick is to cherry pick the right one for the right teaching moment! I've clipped it to Evernote and will try to remember to pick one out each time I'm looking for a quick activity in class or to add to the class blog as a student-directed review activity.

Hundreds of quizzes on loads of different themes - something for everyone!

Language games developed by the University of Gröningen (Netherlands) used to build a "large annotated corpus and improve natural language processing software."

Shona Whyte's insight:

Grammar Gamble for language geeks, no doubt intended for native speakers, it can provide reading/parsing practice for advanced ESL learners - in Twins, for example, decide whether the highlighted word is a noun or a verb, and indicate your confidence in your decision using a slider.

Nice use of online tools to create listening exercises.  Learners could do this too for speaking practice with the goal of creating quizzes for other learners.

Grammar Gamble - online quizzes

Grammar Gamble - online quizzes | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Play Grammar Gamble, the online English grammar test, and beat the scores of your friends.
Grammar Gamble is based on the popular classroom activity. Players choose the answer to a grammar question and 'bet' points depending on how confident they are. At the end of the game they can share their final scores on Facebook or Twitter.

 


Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Shona Whyte's insight:

Discrete multiple choice questions on sentence-level grammar: choose the correct version of one sentence, or identify grammatical features, then decide how much you're willing to bet.  

 

The set I tested was probably suitable for lower-intermediate/intermediate learners.  Feedback is immediate, after each answer, but shows the correct answer without an explicit right or wrong evaluation. (You need to check your total score for this information.)

 

Obviously very decontextualised explicit grammar practice, which may have its place in your learning programme and may be more fun than usual.
