New Language Learning Activities - www.esl-lab.com

Great News! I have been experimenting with new video, audio, and text activities that help teachers and students interact in a different way on my site, http://www.esl-lab.com/. The activity you see below is using a service called Voice Threads, and I am currently testing to see if this project could benefit you and other visitors. You can see more details about the project at http://esl-lab.com/like1/movietheater-vt.htm.

Basically, you can listen to and share comments about topics that are on my site. Give it a try.
