The lesson supports a mix of face to face and technology integration.  I would like to see the statistics or research behind this type of language acquistition program.  The reinforcement of concepts learned in the classroom within a safe environment online is intriguing as an educator.  Your lesson supports teachers who may be struggling finding ideas of how to reach a diverse student body.  Many classrooms across the world may find 35 students in their rooms with 10 different languages spoken.  Your plan supports reaching all of these students in a common setting with a clear focus.  Along with your focus for introduction of discussion techniques when in a group setting could also benefit younger students with the needed support of classroom discussion protocols.

Technical Remarks:

I am curious after exploring your lesson plan as to the Discuss With Me website.  It this resource available only by subscription?  I tried to explore the site but was unsuccessful in entering the discussion area.
