Awesome new way to learn a foreign language!
Last semester I tried out this app in my college class because my professor was “trying something new”. I was skeptical at first, but it turned out to be an awesome tool. I found myself learning at a much faster rate because of it. This is because I was actually speaking the language in practice through homework assignments, in class discussions, etc. Essentially what the prof did was have in class times that everyone would speak into the app - no one was singled out - everyone was focused on their own prompt - then just hit send and it was off to be graded. I enjoy it much more than waiting to be called on in class. Honesty this is definitely something worth trying out.
Great, easy to use app. Smooth integration with Canvas
Extempore is a great speaking assessment tool for teachers to use with students learning a language. We really enjoy using this app and it integrates easily with Canvas assignments. It’s a flexible app that allows instructors to customize the parameters of each speaking assessment. Grading feature is straightforward and grades can be sent to the student gradebook in Canvas as well. On the student-end, it’s very easy to complete an assessment and view the grade and instructor feedback. I highly recommend this app to support language courses.
