We have been trialling "Language Perfect" and the students love it. I am interested to hear who else uses it. Is it worth the cost?

We have been using it for a couple of years now. Kids love it. Well worth the money

Ciao I'm Kate and I'm a Language Perfect convert. Language Perfect is a wondeful resource for all language students.

Teachers have freedom to build their own vocabulary lists, borrow pre-existing lists from other teachers/schools and most textbooks now have a chapter by chapter vocabulary list available through Language Perfect.

We have been using LP at St Johns for 3 years now. The students love learning vocabulary (no word of a lie), they love the competition (especially the boys) and I love that they are remembering their vocabulary - giving most students a higher success rate in their writing and speaking skills.

If your school isn't willing to support the $30 annual cost per student, perhaps start off slowly with the World Championships - a world wide language competition. In 2013 this will take place on 20 - 30 May and registration is only $5 per student (which is automatically included if you register for the year).

I love Language Perfect because it is a fun and engaging way for students to learn vocabulary in the language they study at school. As it is competitive, students push themselves to learn faster and better each time they log on. The program is also a great way for teachers to monitor student learning outside the classroom, with constant updates of their progress displayed on their class profiles. I encourage all other teachers to sign up! You will not be disappointed!

We havwe been trialling it too... the kids love it and if you can afford it I would go with it. The support is tremendous and there are literacy advantages as well as learning vocab.

cheers
