How I Use It
I would use this as homework and for part of class time to get student to really work out the information I am giving them. They can also connect and interact with each other during and after class through the program. This would be an addition resource for them to continue to practice and memorize the information. It will be a great way to keep my students interacting in the class instead of just silently listening to me teach.
My Take
I really like this program for teaching as it makes something so intimidating, like learning a language, more fun and attainable in the eyes of the students. It brings out some healthy competition as they can connect and interact with their other classmates and they can help each other move up in the program. It keeps students engaged and wanting to continue to improve in their language learning. Making learning and practice enjoyable can be difficult but very rewarding and I believe this program does that,
