Lingua.ly for Teachers
Do you feel your students are not being exposed to new language outside of the classroom? Are you tired of your textbook and in need of something new? Lingua.ly to the rescue!
Lingua.ly is a great addition to your teacher’s toolbox and can lead you down the road to hassle free blended learning in no-time. It’s an effective way to make sure your students expand their vocabulary, maintain motivation and keep their memory skills sharp. It also saves you a boatload of time scouring the web for appropriately pitched reading texts and instead allows you to concentrate on what really matters, your students.
This is how it works
Put www.lingua.ly on the board and ask all of your students to sign up. PS It’s completely free and will only take a few minutes. Make sure they are using a Chrome browser and select the correct study language then assign them a collection task of ten new words a day for homework with review games for added practice. After they’ve collected a few words, Lingua.ly’s personalized reading suggestions will help each student ‘follow’ their new vocabulary in real articles from around the web that match their interests and level. NEXT play fun classroom games with the new words, start a class vocabulary list, design presentations around the suggested reading, embark on a written slang unit: the possibilities are endless!
Lingua.ly provides your students with the scaffolding and tools they need to explore a foreign language when you’re not there to help. It also teaches life-long learning skills by encouraging them to seek out new language and have fun doing it. Best of all, it allows you to bring digital learning into your class without detracting from precious classroom time.
