Word Hippo is a word study tool for synonyms, antonyms, and more. Look for rhyming words, opposites, translations to a variety of languages, plurals, definitions and uses for the word, etc. The site also makes suggestions for other words in case you might have made a typo or do not know the spelling. As with any other reference, students should be cautioned to be sure these are accurate definitions needed for the context in which they are studying the words. You will want to spell out consequences and/or supervise to be sure students are not searching for inappropriate words, but the most egregious words of bad taste do not appear to be available for search at this site.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): antonyms (26), dictionaries (57), spelling (168), synonyms (38), vocabulary (324), vocabulary development (124), word study (79)

In the Classroom

Use this site for vocabulary development and word study assignments, such as writing sentences, paragraphs, or essays using new words. Since the site permits translation, this would be a valuable tool in world language classes, ESL/ELL classes, and more. Introduce this site on an interactive whiteboard and elicit examples to show the class how quickly it works. Have students create their own word walls with synonyms, antonyms, sentences, and more for their latest vocabulary words. Try a tool such as Padlet, reviewed here, for each student to create an online "wall" with words aligned to color coded stickies for synonyms. antonyms, etc. Alternatively, have students create class challenges for their peers with color coded matching activities for the interactive whiteboard matching words to synonyms, antonyms, and an appropriate fill in the blank sentence. Share this as a favorite on your teacher public page for handy reference any time students encounter an unknown word. Even subject area teachers such as science and social studies will find this tool handy for students with weaker vocabulary levels.

By the makers of the language learning software Rosetta Stone, this free site offers language learners an opportunity to have an online pen pal. You can choose to use the chat or email function and practice your language skills in the languages of your choice. After a free registration, you can use either voice chat, written chat, or email. You can share as little or as much information as you choose to in your profile. To begin, simply choose a native language for your language partner as well as the language you would like to use to communicate in! There is the option to choose more than one chat partner as well. With an authentic language partner from another culture the opportunity to learn about culture, idiomatic language, things of interest to young people, etc. is a terrific bonus for you. Develop a network of friends at this site.

tag(s): arabic (21), chat (53), chinese (50), french (90), german (65), hebrew (19), idioms (45), italian (34), japanese (43), russian (28), spanish (108)

In the Classroom

Use this site with your world language students. Warning: Due to interaction with the public, be sure to check your school's policy on allowing students to register on a site such as this. We strongly recommend parent permission, as well. Discuss safety issues in advance, such as what to do if the "pal" enters into inappropriate discussions.

If you have a group of students participating, prepare a list of interview questions and have your students make culture reports using the information they gather from their partners. You could give them a choice of presentation tools, so all in the class can learn from the other cultures. Use a presentation tool such as authorSTREAM reviewed here, My Brochure Maker reviewed here, or Bookemon reviewed here.

Use Animaps to go beyond Google's My Maps, adding animation. You can add text, multiple location stops, and images to maps. Maps that you make can be shared with anyone or kept private. Connect your Animaps to Facebook and Twitter for direct photo and map sharing. This tool's major advantage is that it adds the factor of time to the map.

tag(s): map skills (81), maps (293), timelines (64)

In the Classroom

To use this tool, create an account and start playing with the features. There are also tutorials and showcases featured on the site to show what can be done. This would be great for creating time lines in social studies class, showing different places and teaching geography and social studies together. Foreign language students could create maps explaining culture aspects of the language or trace the origins of language. Assign students in math or family consumer sciences to be travel agents and plan vacations, including the costs of the trip.

As part of a book project, have your students show the setting of a novel they are reading, with images that annotate their impression of what the setting looks like. Have students create visual current events, especially for events that take place over time, such as the primaries and Presidential Elections.

Video clips are taken from things that interest teens. Students can select a "translation" language for the question vocabulary to be instantly translated on mouse-over. Students can also create an identity online, a "badge." Be certain to monitor the daily offerings and preview to make sure they are appropriate for your classroom.

This site features a video collection for second language learners. It allows you to select short videos on a wide variety of subjects for classroom use. There are also pre-written quizzes -- or you can prepare your own quiz about the video. Students can view, test, and receive the results of their quizzes from any computer; results appear immediately. Videos and quizzes are available at four levels. The same type of offering can be used in French, Spanish, German, and other languages. You can simply set up a class group and students can use a log in to access the videos and quizzes. You can also add your own video selections and quizzes to the site. The parameters ask that videos be rated up to PG-13 only. Registration is free. You can make comments on the videos and quizzes. Other offerings of the site include transcripts of the videos and culture notes with relevant information, as well as grammar, vocabulary, slang, and pronunciation help.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): listening (91), vocabulary (324), vocabulary development (124)

In the Classroom

Assign these videos and quizzes to ESL/ELL students and world language students to help improve their listening comprehension and vocabulary in a fun way! This activity would work well for individual or pairs of students in a lab or on laptops. Check with your administrators to be sure they allow students to make comments on such sites. Registration requires an email. If you choose to have students register individually, read tips for safely managing email registrations here. Encourage students to find appropriate videos their teachers can share; students could get wonderful listening and writing practice by preparing their own quizzes. Teachers can then submit them if approved.

Teach students about foods, measurement, or nutrition, and find great recipes at Visual Recipes. View a picture of each step of the recipe as you read the directions. English language learners and new learners to foods will find this a great resource.

tag(s): cooking (35), nutrition (159), sequencing (31), visual thinking (9), visualizations (13)

In the Classroom

Choose recipes to create a menu that meets all of the requirements of the new USDA "MyPlate." Analyze a typical dish to look at calories and the breakdown of the nutrients. Be a food scientist, choosing recipes that are examples of different types of solutions (homogeneous and heterogeneous) or basic chemical reactions. Encourage healthy eating, ethnic exploration through foods, and many other topics with these easy to follow pictures and directions. World language teachers will love this visual approach to foods in another culture and can ask students to "narrate" a visual recipe in the new language while presenting on interactive whiteboard or projector. Use visual recipes to teach sequencing for writing about step by step process using words like "first, then, next." Challenge cooperative learning groups to make their own slideshow/recipe for a favorite dish of their choice using a site such as 280Slides (reviewed here).

This easy to use site allows you to make interactive online quizzes or use pre-made quizzes sorted by subject. You can upload classes, assign quizzes, and receive scores (if students are registered.) Current quizzes available range from Drama to Law to Math (and all core subjects). The format allows for any topic, and the enjoyable characters help to maintain student interest. Note: This site was created in the United Kingdom and follows the curriculum of the United Kingdom. You may notice slight spelling/pronunciation differences.

tag(s): assessment (107), quiz (88), quizzes (100)

In the Classroom

You can create and/or assign quizzes for any topic. You need not register students to simply assign an activity, but registration is required to keep and report scores. You simply check which countries to include to narrow activity searches, so decide whether alternate spellings might be an issue for your curriculum topic. Students can use quizzes either at home or in school. Use this site to help students review concepts and receive immediate feedback on their performance. There is a direct link in the quizzes to send a link to registered students or to share on social networking sites such as Facebook, iGoogle and Blogger. Assign small groups of students to create their own quiz for any topic you might be studying. Students can challenge their peers as a review.

Type characters and accents in any foreign language simply by clicking them on screen using TypeIt. Especially handy for those of us who do not know the keyboard shortcuts (or ASCI codes) for accents and unlauts, this handy tool lets you compose in a text box, then simply copy/paste the text into your "destination." Now you can write text to include in the many online tools reviewed by the TeachersFirst Edge and include the accurate accents and diacritical markings vitally important to language learning. Simply keep Type It open in one tab and your tool of choice open in another. Prepare the text in TypeIt and copy/paste to text boxes in any tool or even in PowerPoint, Word, or interactive whiteboard software. Type It is easier to use than "insert character" in most word processing programs, as well!

tag(s): french (90), german (65), spanish (108), spelling (168)

In the Classroom

Have students creating projects in your language class? Now online posters made using Sway, reviewed here, or interactive timelines created using a site such as Sutori, reviewed here, can include the markings that are part of the language. Mark this one in your favorites and make it available from your class web page for students to use it any time, in and out of class.

For visual learners, maps can be powerful learning tools. This site takes the use of maps to explore cultural and historical changes to a whole new level. Using Berlin as an example, the site uses maps from 1237 through 2003 to tell the story of the city. Each map is richly hyperlinked with popup resources. A sidebar menu lists both people and places of significance; clicking the entry takes you to the relevant place on the map. As an alternative, you can simply explore the maps. From the site, it appears as though other city maps were originally planned, but the project does not seem to have been pursued past 2006; this does not detract from its usefulness.


Be sure to turn off your pop-up blocker or you will be unable to access the site content.

tag(s): german (65), germany (28), maps (293)

In the Classroom

While the site may be impressive on an interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce a lesson on the place of Berlin in history, it is probably more useful for students to explore individually or in small groups. Rather than focus on Berlin specifically, use the site to ask larger questions about geography and culture and how maps can show us changes over time. Challenge cooperative learning groups to create simple videos sharing how maps demonstrated change in another area of the world. Share the videos using a site such as SchoolTube (reviewed here).
