neuroLanguage Practice Player

 

A very useful language learning tool that focuses on improving learners pronunciation and oral skills.  The program provides a native speaker model and allows the learner to record his voice and compare it to the model and get instant feedback.

Present.me  

 

Here is a review of present.me, which basically allows you to present yourself either socially or professionally and present your ideas on documents / slides that you have uploaded and then share them in a variety of ways.

 I look at the use of this tool  in online teaching and learning and in my context online English language courses. Before you click on the link to watch it, just a couple of suggestions to enhance your viewing experience J . It is best viewed in full-screen mode and in full-screen mode you can maximise the content window in the bottom right of the toolbar if you wish to.
