If you are reading this, it means you at least enjoyed my presentation a little bit, so thanks a lot for taking the time to come here! Anyway, here are the links to things that I used during my presentation:
DIS iz d site dat allows U 2 wrte lIk dis!
It’s very simple to use, just simply insert your text and press ‘translate’. Very useful for opening teen lessons. Click HERE to use it 🙂
PhotoBabble is a free app when you can do voice overs to explain your photos. You can obviously access it on phones and tablets, but you can also find it HERE.
Remember you can also do what I did which was record myself directly on PowerPoint.
Obviously you can use any voice recorder on any phone to do this. It’s great to give students speaking practice at home and can be used for almost anything. You can get students to do recaps of stories read in class, listening texts, I even use it for my IELTS groups and get them to record themselves speaking for 2 minutes. Just make sure you tell them to bring headphones next lesson!
This is a great account where you can find all types of photos. Idioms, abstract nouns, daily routines… you name it! Click HERE to have a gander 😉
A nice fun website where your students can add entries and feel proud of themselves for having something on the internet. Click HERE to have a look.
I use one called ‘Captions’ which is now a paid app, but there are plenty of free ones. You can also use PowerPoint and just insert some speech bubbles… something I regularly do when it’s just one pic!
Teens love memes, so this can always be a fun (and easy) thing to do. Click HERE to create your memes for free.
I hope you enjoyed the presentation and that you use at least one of these things in your lessons. Most importantly however… remember to tell your students about my podcast! 😉
