How I Use It
I think this is a great addition to any language class. It can be used as in class practice, homework and used in a blended environment. It is very easy to set up. There are many languages to choose from. Currently there is no way to create class accounts and track your students but I believe that is coming in January. This will be a great addition to already a fun and easy to use program for learning languages.
My Take
I think it makes a great tool for any teacher who is either teaching a language or wants to learn a language. I like the interface. It is simple and clean. It is engaging. There are reward systems set up. The only addition for schools that I mentioned above is that there needs to be the ability to create class accounts and track student progress.
