Synchronous or asynchronous

Whether synchronous or asynchronous, regular conversation practice is essential for language learning.

Videos for listening comprehension or as a stimulus

In the Schoolshape Language Lab teachers can easily upload videos for listening comprehension or as a stimulus for speaking practice, conversation, grammar and composition exercises. Comedy duos provide excellent fodder for this purpose.

Added motivational and conceptual value of Schoolshape resources

Example of the sort of multimedia online resource you can assign as a task to your students with writing , speaking and grammar learning exercises. The option of working in pairs online either synchronously or asynchronously adds to the motivational and conceptual value of the resources.

Pairing students in any geographical location

Connecting students with each other for dialogue practice is useful. However, the connection needs to be contained within a constructive resource, instructing them what to say and do, supporting the language they'll use, and recording their efforts as a basis for future development.

Multimedia Interactive Worksheets Using the Schoolshape Language Lab, teachers can line up a series of interactive worksheets ready to use in their language teaching schedule. Each worksheet contains all the media required to teach the specific subject matter and, once assigned and completed, will also contain each student's work, much of which will be automatically assessed by the system, with a record of progress displayed in a timeline on the teaching screen.
