News: Google Translate App gains momentum

Translation apps continue to evolve. Google Translate for Android is gaining support for an experimental feature that allows two people to converse in real-time, with both speaking in their native language. This could be the advent of a universal translator. The big question is how increasingly sophisticated technology will affect language teaching. Currently, over a dozen languages are supported with more soon to follow. You can read more in the link to the Gigaom article below:

News: What is the "app gap" and should we be concerned?

A recent article on Edutopia focuses on the so-called "app gap" that is developing between children from low-income households and their more-affluent peers, which raises questions about how such a disparity in exposure to educational technology will affect students. The writer of the blog wonders whether this trend is something that should be immediately addressed and whether this gap is similar to the gap between students with PCs and internet access and those without.

News: ELL 'Shadowing' in California shows promise

A recent Education Week article reports on a new practice by teachers and administrators at a California school. The so-called 'shadowing of ELL students by teachers and administrators has improved achievement among the ELL learners. The teachers and administrators act as observers by sitting in on the classes. It is typically observed that the students simply do not speak enough or receive enough exposure to academic language. You can read more in the full article below:

Spanish: Día de los muertos en México.

Hello everyone, Claudia Sadowski here. In my very first post and given my Mexican background in addition to the soon to be celebrated Día de Los Muertos, I am sharing a video that I use in my class. This video portrays some of the main points to describe this celebration. Before I show this video in my class, we cover the main vocabulary words related to the topic.

Japanese: Look for a roomate!

This is a good interviewing activity to do after learning basic verbs (get up, eat, go to school, play tennis, sleep, etc). Students will ask each other about their daily activities and find out who has a similar life style with them.

1. Fill out their own life style first.
2. Interview three classmates and fill out.
3. Ask them who they chose and why.

The following link provides a handout to supplement the activity:

Look for a roommate!

Group Activities: Interview Bingo

You have probably used Bingo activities in lessons on teaching numbers and counting. Is that all that can be done with Bingo? Traditional Bingo activities in the language classroom lack in interactivity and mostly practice students' receptive skills. However, you can expand your activities repertoire to include a more advanced and interactive form of Bingo by using interviews (question and answers) with a target form or vocabulary. This works best if you provide students with prepared Bingo sheets as handouts in order to save time. You can setup the grid size as normal or a 4x4 for shorter versions. Instead of having numbers in each square you include a question with target grammar or vocabulary. The students must then go around and ask their classmates the various questions on the Bingo grid. If a student answers affirmatively, then they sign the Bingo sheet. If not, the student must keep asking until someone answer with yes. The first person to get a Bingo wins. The teacher should circulate to make sure the students are providing correct questions and answers.

We will be providing downloadable Bigno activities soon so stay tuned!

Spanish: Futuro y Condicional

Hello everyone, Claudia here,

I wanted to share with you a picture I made for my students to learn the 12 irregular verbs in the future and the conditional tenses in Spanish. I drew a clock and for every hour on the clock I set an irregular verb so that students can learn them and remember them if they draw the clock.

You can also make the clock hands move so you can play with it. Just spin the hands and students will have to conjugate the verb they land on. you can alternate person and number.

Teachers often use the "12 Apostles" of the Christian church as a mnemonic device with these verbs but I prefer using something everyone can relate to; since not everybody belongs to the same religion.

I hope you find this helpful and fun! Enjoy!

News: Translation Apps for the business class

Creating a blog for writing practices!

Konnichiwa, Yumiko here. Today I would like to introduce a blog written by one of my former students. It is well known that creating a newspaper in or out of class is a very good practice for writing. Thanks to the advanced technology, you don't need to print the papers anymore. You can pile articles online and more and more people can read it. Moreover, people can leave a comment on the articles. Sounds fun and easy, right? The student is writing a blog as an assignment of her language class, which is advanced, but a student from any level can start writing newspaper/blog. They can write about anything they like. Please visit and take a look at her website!

News: Love for Russian at French Immersion School

The Robert Goddard French Immersion School in Prince George's County in Maryland has the largest Russian middle school program in the nation. Often, Russian programs have a large number of heritage learners. At Goddard however, 82% of the students are black or Hispanic. The interest in Russian is a bit unusual as French is the typically reported as the most popular choice of high school students. The program at Goddard is quite intensive, with students using a college level textbook. You can read more in the Washington Post article below:

German: Charades with Reflexive

Chris here again with a fun activity for your German classes. Charades is a fun game that pairs well with language teaching. I recently used this for a lesson on reflexive verbs and daily routine/hygiene vocabulary.

I gathered several pictures of the target phrases such as I wash myself / Ich wasche mich and then divided the class into two groups. One student from each group came up to the front of the class and was shown a picture featuring one of the daily routine tasks. Then each student modeled the activity for their group. The group members then had to guess the correct reflexive phrase. Once you cycle through the various tasks once you could go through a second time but have the students in the groups write the correct phrases on the board after each task is modeled. You can have a lot of fun with this activity by having guy students get tasks such as applying makeup to oneself - Ich schminke mich! Students tend to really get into the acting part of the activity so motivation and attention are high.

German Video: Bairisch Lernen mit Videos

Chris here with another German video. It's always fun to show students more of the language and culture and dialects are one way to show the variety present in German. Textbooks generally do not feature much if any dialect content. Here are a few videos featuring Bavarian as part of a comedy series. It also contains translations into standard German. Enjoy!

News: Alabama Immigration Law results in absence of Hispanic students from school

A recent article in USA Today reports on Alabama's new immigration law which was recently upheld by a federal judge. The law mandates that schools check the immigration status of students. Officials say that the information obtained will only be shared with the state Department of Education to assess how much is being spent on teaching illegal immigrants. The issue is that many Hispanic families misunderstand the law or are fearful of its intentions. As a result, many districts are reporting the absence of hundreds of Hispanic students. It is important to note that federal law requires immigrant children to be educated in public schools. You can read the full article by following the link below:

News: IPhone App helps travelers speak in a foreign language

A article from the Boston Globe reports on a new iPhone application called "Vocre" which can convert spoken words into a foreign language, in order for people in an unfamiliar country to be able to communicate with the locals. The app was developed by myLanguage and uses another modern phenomenon -- crowd-sourcing. The program gets input from native speakers to make its use of local lingo and dialects more accurate. The application is not without its detractors however. Critics point to the rather high cost of the application and the fact that it is not very user friendly at this point. An update for the app is imminent which aims to resolve the aforementioned issues according to CEO and founder Andrew Lauder. You can read the full article below:
