Fun ways for children to hear their writing

This is a fun activity that children love doing and gives them an opportunity to play with the English they are learning.

Have a laugh by typing in simple English they are learning to the ‘Walking the dog’ activity and see their reaction to the talking dog asking: Hello. Good morning everyone. How are you?  or let them type in information from their science class in the ‘Good news’ or ‘Serious business’ applications.  When working on materials and recycling materials, children had a whale of a time listening to information from their project like ‘We can reuse many objects from every day life.  We can also take many objects to recycling banks.’

As this is computer generated, just like the Talk it application (http://talk-it.programas-gratis.net/), the intonation isn’t always great but if the children in your class know the language they are typing in well, they can always look at correcting it.
