PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use Google Voice with your World Language students to promote oral proficiency in their homes. This download is comprised of a tutorial on setting up Google Voice, picking a number, changing forwarding preferences, recording greetings, as well as a sample letter home to parents about Google Voice.

Possible tasks include: Use Google Voice to assign voicemail homework tasks in which your students are asked to perform in an authentic situation that he or she may very well encounter in the target country. For example, read an authentic "Help Wanted" ad and have students call your Google Voice number as if they were inquiring about the job. Or simply have students speak the answers from a workbook activity instead of writing them.

The uniqueness of Google Voice allows you to assess your students outside of class which leaves more time for meaningful in-class instruction. Furthermore, Google Voice targets the Community Standard by bringing the target language into your students' living rooms.

As a world language teacher, this allows you an invaluable opportunity to evaluate your students’ oral proficiency in the language.

All subject areas can adapt this tool. The possibilities are endless.
