       Audio homework: Google Voice & Lingt


This site lets you create your own online activities where text, audio & video cues can be used to get oral or written responses from students. You can have 6 assignments for free.


We can insert text, images, video to set up an assignment. One balloon reads the teacher's prompt, and the other allows the student to respond.


To try it out, go here to answer two questions about what you want for breakfast in your best French. Or if you don't speak French, use English....

Lingt's online video tutorial provides a nice overview:

Phone Apps

For a simple solution, any app on your student's phone that can record audio can send it to the teacher as homework. Through the sharing menu, the student can then email the audio homework file to you or send it via another app (e.g. WhatsApp, Skype) or the cloud e.g. Google Docs, Dropbox, iCloud.

You might prefer to set up a separate email address for this to avoid using your regular email address.
