What’s the best way to learn English?…
“… To see and hear people using it in practice, to understand it… And to use it yourself!”
This is the catch phrase for our new application, Citizen of the World.
Developed by professors at the University of Wolverhampton this application is slightly different from other Edulang resources as Citizen of the World uses a video approach, pinpointing specific vocabulary needs for a wide range of situations. All the same, it’s still based on the same pedagogical roots of 1) pre-language exposure, 2) focus while listening/viewing 3) confirming understanding, and then 4) reproduction of new knowledge.
Here’s a peak at exercises from one of the four units of Citizen of the world: Getting Things Done.
Other units address People and Places, Getting around and Modern Living. There are 20 or so activities (40 counting the 2 different levels) within each, an activity is based around a short video with 5 exercises to explore.
Tempted and want to test out Citizen of the World?
Like all Edulang resources, this new application is Pay What You Want. If you’re a teacher, though, we’re happy to offer you a free version of all of our products, and all it takes is a quick registration here and we’ll get you set up!
NOW, the second new application just out this week is none other than…
English for Business also has a video learning format much like Citizen of the World. With 6 units to explore, a business learner will certainly have plenty to discover among… An Introduction to a British Company, Managing Quality, Negotiating, Organising Change, International Marketing and International Sales.
Here is a preview of some of the lessons for Organising Change:
And here you can see how a single lesson (among the many to choose in each unit) is broken down into 5 different exercises. The exercises themselves vary quite a bit, but this 5-step structure is consistent throughout.
Again, if you’re a teacher, we’d be happy to set you up with a free trial to either of the two applications mentioned today… and really ALL of the ones you see below.
