Southville Students Learn with Virtual Language Teacher



Nowadays, students are tech savvy and spend more time on a computer than anywhere else.  Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) recognizes this by using technology and interactive, multimedia activities in its learning programs, thus, motivating students with engaging learning experiences.

 

As a supplement to in-class work, SISC’s Basic Education Division is using the Tell Me More language training software which builds English fluency through six key language learning skills: reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary, and grammar. By using this program, SISC students associate listening to reading and writing. Some of the vocabulary building exercises include picture/word association; fill in the blanks, word association, and fun games like crossword puzzles, word searches, and a version of hangman.

 

Students have a choice from 20,000 interactive and engaging exercises including word puzzles, reading exercises, and cultural studies to keep their learning fresh, fun, and impactful. The learning programs are also suited to user needs as the software offers Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
