Good for using authentic listening material. This could be used to expand topics like the family.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the links didn't work.

I liked the author/designer's concept of incorporating visuals of real people,
written and spoken target language, and student interactivity with the material
to reinforce and expand a students'knowledge of the various topics presented in
the modules.

Technical Remarks:

When I examined this site on October 18, 2004, some of the links did not work.
I did notice that the site was copyrighted 1997 and I do not know when it was
last updated. If the site is updated, the combination of visual images, audio,
and student interactivity with the material should appeal to learners of various
learning styles. I think that once students have been through one of the
modules in a computer lab or the like with their instructor or teacher, they
will have a better understanding on how the modules work and they could complete
them individually. Because of the variety of technology incorporated, users
should access the site with a broadband connection.
