Vocaroo can easily become a super language learning and language practicing tool. Teachers can use this free, easy to use online recording tool for speaking tasks assigned as homework. So often speaking is only practiced in class, for limited periods of time, but this handy free internet based tool gives students a language lab learning experience right within their own homes, without any fancy recording equipment. All you need is a computer with a microphone and speakers.
Students could be asked to describe their bedrooms, homes, what they did that day or what they do usually do on the weekends or this could be used as an online verbal journal for students to comment on their language learning progress that week. Or, teachers could email out a recording and ask students to answer a few questions based on what they heard. The sky`s the limit! Students can record and playback the recordings, and when they have one they like, they can save it, and email it to the teacher, or post it to twitter, Facebook or any other social media network of their choice.
