How I Use It
I used this to introduce descriptions (personality and physical) traits in Spanish to my 6th grade class. In addition, I had students create their own Vokie as a way for them to practice the vocabulary and the verb "ser". The playback voice is a bit muffled at times and made it difficult for some students to understand.
My Take
I really liked that students could create their own profile and build their own Vokie characters. This is perfect for students and this particular topic in Spanish. They can create their own character and vary hair color, eye color, outfits, and accessories. Outside of this application, I don't see any other way a language teacher could use this.
