General
How I Use It
I didn't use it in class it was more of a homework task. You can add your class to you which I am in the process of doing to keep the challenge up. It is more used for at home learning. It covers all aspects of the language so the students wanted to learn. It was easy and fun and the students have really captured the excitement it brings. Until everyone signs up you can't see if they are using it. It would be really good if the makers designed a way to add your class, so all can benefit from it.
My Take
Super easier to follow. Such a great app. Good for homework tasks and challenges. Highly recommend I liked the competitive nature of it and the challenge of getting the words correct. I shared it with the class and did one lesson. It would be nice to have small one off lessons to just do some revision with that class. There is ways to get around that.
