I was talking to a colleague at work recently who had just come back from one of those wonderful courses with names such as Make Languages Interesting or 101 Websites for Languages, or something like that, and he had come back with a CD ROM which promised to be brimming with Internet resources for languages. It contained the usual mix but Languages Online from Australia was missing from the list.
Languages Online has, as well as game makers which you can download to create your own masterpieces for free, tons of ready made exercises for French, German and Italian (as well as Indonesian!) but, sadly, no Spanish. This website is a hit with my classes because it lends itself to being used both on the interactive whiteboard for whole class activities and in the ICT rooms for individual work.
Although I teach in Secondary, I can see how this website could potentially be really useful in Primary, particularly because it has such gems as a downloadable songs page, with all the songs in the different languages as used on the exercises in mp3 format.
The website also contains a large amount of downloadable worksheets in pdf format.
In short, this is a very useful, well designed website that is bound to keep you and your pupils happy for quite a while and, unfortunately, it is still not that well known in this country, as demonstrated by its conspicuous absence from the 101 best MFL websites CD ROM that I mentioned earlier.
Think Linguascope, but without the having to pay bit.
