 Message: Hi everyone!

Someone just alerted me of this thread and I was excited to see it--this is Chris from Boomalang.

We've heard good things from professors about both En Vivo and TalkAbroad and we support their related missions--we just built Boomalang a little differently after meeting with educators the past few years.

I thought we should clarify that Boomalang can actually be less expensive than the others depending on the number of conversations you'd like for your students.

We're unique in a few areas, but often people recognize our option for 15-min. conversations, in which many professors and teachers appreciate as an approachable way to introduce Spanish-only conversation.

See you in Nashville in November! (Or of course I'd love to speak with any of you beforehand. Please feel free to message me.)

Abrazo,
Chris

Hello colleagues,

For pairing language students with native speakers, I have used TalkAbroad. The interface is smooth and my students have liked their partners (and it's cheaper than Boomalang).

Christopher,

I spoke with Chris Gerding last week and I like very much the product.

We are using this semester En vivo. So far it is very good and they video record the messages.

Thank you for the information.

Hi there -

For the record, the program is actually http://www.boomalang.co/  (correct link).

I just did the 15-min intro session for it with the CEO of it, Chris Gerding.  It looks like a neat thing.  During open house recently, I had the website posted and suggested that parents buy some online sessions as Christmas presents.  I intend to do a demo of it with my students soon.

I just learned about a great program that pairs students with native speakers.  It's called Boomalong.  (www.boomalong.co)  It's also great for non-native Spanish speakers to keep up their fluency!

Since it is not free, the school or department would have to pay for the service.  Check it out!

Hola,

Estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo. La inmersión en un contexto auténtico de la lengua que se estudia es fundamental. Yo siempre motivo a mis estudiantes a viajar y/o registrarse en un programa de inmersión, y/o aprovechar cada oportunidad de contacto con hispanohablantes, en particular porque enseño en una escuela internacional. Discutimos que para ser "ciudadanos del mundo" y futuros "empleados globales" es obligación aprender un idioma, y para aprender un idioma es necesario estar expuestos a la lengua y su cultura.

Sigamos trabajando e insistiendo en este tema.

Saludos cordiales,

Margarita

La importancia de la inmersión en el aprendizaje de un idioma, especialmente para los jovenes.


Porque la inmersión es lo mas importante en el aprendizaje de un idioma? Es una clase donde se habla solo en el idioma,  vivir en un pais extranjero.

Lo mas importante en el aprendizaje de un idioma es ! hablar !  y no puedes  hacer esto sin la inmersión con hablantes nativos.
No va a lograr la confianza de hablar un idioma extranjero a menos que se obligara hacerlo.
