Lyricstraining

Principal function(s): Video record/ edit/ share

Easy to use tool to test your language knowledge and your memory. Choose a genre, pick a song and fill in the gaps in the lyrics. Great group activity which combines learning with your students’ favourite songs. It comes with adjustable levels of difficulty which is useful for different age groups. Also available in app form.

Evaluation: Good classroom activity that engages students while practising vocabulary at the same time. Available in up to 13 languages. Keeps track of your score, allowing students to compete against one another, however you must sign up for a free account to access this feature. Teachers also have the ability to customise songs and choose the lyrics to be filled in by their students. When using the app version, it limits the number of songs you can play for free to 3 songs in 30 minutes, however there are no limitations with the web version.

Cost: Free, with registration, premium version available

Write & Improve (Tool to improve your writing in English)

Write & Improve is a free online tool developed by the University of Cambridge to help English language learners improve their writing skills. Students choose their level and then receive a selection of writing tasks that match that level. Once the task has been submitted, the tool automatically assigns an appropriate grade and also gives feedback on the writing, which students can incorporate into the original text. Students can also create their own writing assignments.... View details
