I’ve put together a website that I think will be beneficial to educators and especially those within the ESL world.
Providing interactive classrooms with real personalized feedback and instruction remains a significant hurdle. Additionally, current language learning software still lags far behind the human ear in interpreting and analyzing human speech (my wife has even mentioned that even she herself is sometimes “corrected” by the software used in her language lab).
But with the proliferation of the internet and student laptops, bridging these gaps is easier than ever before.
In a nutshell, SpeechPeek.com’s goals are:
– provide a variety of interactive ESL exercises (pronunciation exercises, set conversational exercises, listening comprehension)
– enable educators to provide truly personalized and targeted feedback
– be extremely user-friendly for both students and teachers
