interactive websites; owners make posts / write about something and readers can leave comments



A blog is a very effective tool to practice reading and writing, two fundamental skills to be acquired when 

learning a foreign language. But it also effective to practice listening and speaking, when certain tools are linked to it or embedded in it.


Here are examples of different type of work done in two of my teacher-student blogs.





Extracurricular activities



  • E-card (sent by Sus Nyrop, a Danish teacher-friend; good to learn vocabulary in a fun way)



  • Going to the Zoo (a field trip; interesting to read the dialogue that went on between a student and a teacher in comments #5-10)
