"What if..." - using online resources to practise if-clauses type 3

Uploaded by Sanderin van Hazebrouck, Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg (Germany)

With the help of drop-down menus they can choose the correct answer and receive feedback at the end of the exercise. The learners took turns to come in front to the IWB.

Teacher comment

Here was the link to the Internet. I wanted to show this ego for you thing. I always show them exercises that they can practice on the Internet when they are at home. So that they can check their solutions and check what they found out to help them work at home - organized, on their own, free decision, give them the opportunity to not only learn at school. Use the Internet for learning: grammar issues, topics.

Learner comments

Also ich find schon, dass es uns hilft, weil wir zum Beispiel, wenn wir Wörter nicht wissen, auf die Internetseiten gehen und uns die Wörter anschauen. Allgemein wenn wir Übungen machen müssen, kann man auch ganz schnell auf Internetseiten wie ego4u gehen und da die Übungen machen und so ist es mehr verständlich für uns. 

I think the IWB really helps us, since we can go online if we do not know a word and then we can actually see how it is spelled. In general, when we are doing exercises we can just go online to ego4u and do the exercise there. This way it is a lot more comprehensible for us.
