How I Use It
I have not used it in the classroom as I am not a World Language Teacher, but I can see that it could be a problem for World Language Teachers who want to use it in their classes as the site goes in a specific order which may not match the order that you do in the classroom. It might be good as a review at the end of the year. It would be great if they made an education version that allows teachers to pick which modules to be active so that it would better match what they are doing in class.
My Take
It would be great if they made an education version that allows teachers to pick which modules to be active so that it would better match what they are doing in class. I have used it for personal use though. It is so great and really is challenging. I like the way that they present the material. I've been describing it to people as Rosetta Stone like.
