How I Use It
I used this product for homework. Students are able to explore the topic vocabulary discussed in class. They practice pronunciation at home and learn more vocabulary. Students that use duolingo at home become more fluent with pronunciation.
My Take
First is free and my students have access to it and they can practice using their personal devices. When they practice they participate more in class discussion because they feel more confident.
