Digital Dialects

http://www.digitaldialects.com/Bulgarian.htm

Digital Dialects is an interactive foreign language learning platform. The content is presented in the form of games and quizzes. Each theme starts with presentation of the new vocabulary and expressions followed by an interactive game which helps the learner to practice the new material.

Resource/Tool Description

Didactic Analysis

The games could be implemented directly in class for making the learning more funny and easy. After teaching the new material the trainer could use the slides and games to and practice proper pronunciation with his students. The tool is not appropriate for self-preparation. The trainer should supervise the process and give instructions to the learners all the time.

In the website there are links to other platform for foreign language learning.

Pros and cons:
+ Short and clear learning materials
+ Well-structured course
– Not appropriate for self-preparation
– No audio recordings for proper pronunciation

The resource could be of help for trainers who teach foreign language at beginner level. The tool is appropriate for smaller learners and children, because the learning content is presented as games.
