Is Hausa Online useful for language teaching?
Posted by hausaonline on Friday, February 8, 2008
I just found out that this my Hausa learning blog is currently used as an example in a course for language teachers at Columbia University in New York State. As an assignment, the course participants were asked to examine three different language websites or software applications:
- one from the perspective of a LANGUAGE LEARNER (choose a language that you don’t know)
- one from the perspective of a LANGUAGE TEACHER (choose the target language of your students)
- one from the perspective of a LANGUAGE EXPERT (look for some behaviorist characteristics)
They were asked to post their reflections on the course’s online discussion board. Unfortunately, I do not have access to their reflections on this blog, if there are any.
Students, please post your comments about this blog and give me some input how I could improve it!
