Simple English Wikipedia is an adapted version of the regular Wikipedia site for English learners, younger students, or anyone who struggles with reading. While the homepage looks very similar to the regular Wikipedia site, the articles are written using basic vocabulary and grammar. The site has over 100,000 articles; students can search by keyword, or choose a topic from a set of knowledge groups like Sciences or Culture. There are also links to other Simple English projects like Wiktionary. There's also a Book Creator function that allows students doing research to collect a group of related articles in one place. Is It Good For Learning? With its basic vocabulary and grammar, Simple English Wikipedia can be a great tool to help some intermediate and advanced English learners access information and articles. Some teachers are wary about using Wikipedia as a research source, and with good reason – anyone can write and edit articles. How Can Teachers Use It?

Phrasal Verbs Machine Educator Review What's It Like? Phrasal Verbs Machine helps students learn how to use phrasal verbs, the multiple-word grammatical constructions that are notoriously tough for non-native speakers and a challenge for many native speakers. To illustrate common phrasal verbs, brief animations feature The Amazing Phraso, a mustachioed Victorian-era circus performer who "looks for" his glasses, "lines up" tickets, and "meets up" with a friend. The app's visual style is appealing: Phraso himself is simply and expressively drawn, and the animations are quick. In Phrasal Verbs View, kids can explore phrasal verbs one by one, viewing their definitions and a seconds-long animation that illustrates the action. In the Exercise section, kids watch the same animations -- this time, at random -- and then pick the phrasal verb that best describes the action in the clip. One thing worth noting is that the app is designed by British English speakers. Is It Good For Learning? How Can Teachers Use It?

Oh Noah! Educator Review What's It Like? Oh Noah! is a PBS-based website that offers students a multi-pronged approach to learning Spanish vocab. With its funny, story-based interface, kids are encouraged to take an easygoing, just-try-it approach to learning languages. Students who are learning Spanish, as well as Spanish speakers who are learning English (perfect for a multilingual classroom), could benefit. The site is organized into four main categories: videos, games, activities (that include printables), and characters. Is It Good For Learning? So much of learning a new language is trial and error and being willing to look a little silly. How Can Teachers Use It? You can find suggested offline activities to support learning in a section specifically created for teachers via the link to PBS Teachers. Help students practice some of the vocab that Noah learns by planting the same objects in class or introducing students to similar experiences in school.
