How I Use It
I would use is as a reinforcement activity for what we are covering in class as well as for remediation for those who are struggling and in need of additional practice.
My Take
It is easy to navigate and the student can choose the path to learn that meets their personal interests and extend their learning beyond the classroom. The ability for them to test out of skills gives them immediate feedback, confidence and allows them to move on to areas of interest. Also, the stories for them to read are good for intermediate and advanced learners. The students can link up with other language learners in the discussion section.
