Memrise. Do you love the language that you're learning? What is love anyway? According to the triangular theory of love, there are three components to love, and you need all three for true love: 1. Intimacy - feelings of connectedness, attachment and a sense of bondedness 2. If your relationship has all three of these, then you have what's called consumate love, the true and perfect love. What does this look like when applied to languages? 1. What type of love do you have for the language that you are learning? The combination of components that you have determines your type of love.

Non-love - No components The type of love you have for strangers. You really love a language when: The fact that you are learning it is part of your identity. Substitute _ for the language that you are assessing. Intimacy 1. 1. 1. So which type of love do you have? Developing geography related vocabulary. I saw this website today and thought how great it would be to use it in the classroom for developing words related to places and describing different places. The site GeoGuessr is actually based on Google maps and it's a simple game. The game works like this:You see an image of an unknown place somewhere in the world and you have to guess where it is and click that place on the map.

Because this is based on Google maps street view you can actually explore around the image and look for clues.Once you click on the map you will see the real location and how close or far away you were. You are awarded points depending on how close you are to the real location.You have five turns to score as many points as possible. How to use the site for EFL /ESL The game itself doesn't really involve any language input or output, but you can easily add that. If you are using it in a single computer classroom you can show students the image and ask them to guess where it is. Related links: Best Nik Peachey.
