Woices is a site where people record their impressions of places they are at the moment or places they´ve been to. Unfortunately to EFL teachers, there are very few recordings in English, most of them are in Spanish but I guess as people start using it we´ll have more listening material in English. Once you like an "echo" you can get an embed code for your webpage.
How can we use this site with students?
- you can ask students to choose a place in the map, listen to a recording and then talk about it in class.
- you can ask students to write about a place they´ve been to and then recordtheir echo at WOICES.
- students then can listen to each other echoes and write about the most interesting ones.
- Any other ideas?
This is an echo I´ve found about the Galapagos Island (it´s in Spanish).
This is my very first echo about the "Perito Moreno Glacier"
