This is a relaxed area for you to practise your Speaking and get feedback.
It’s a website called FLIPGRID, where you can post short videos on different topics that I set for you, and you can watch the examples of other students in the group.
I will give you brief feedback as soon as I get the notification (you’ll get an email from me via Flipgrid).
Please let me know if you don’t hear from me within 48 hours!
The main page is here, and there are individual pages for different topics.
You will need the PASSWORD: ieltsvip1
*Please don’t send me audio files by email.
- I can record a response related to pronunciation issues, with timestamps so that you can quickly find and hear what I’m referring to.
- You can see a caption version so you can learn how the computer picks up your voice, which helps identify pronunciation areas.
- It keeps everything in one place and I can refer back to your earlier videos, which helps us track progress.
- Peer learning – you can see other people’s examples (the feedback is private) and get ideas from them.
If you’d rather not show your face, that’s fine! Just switch off the camera.
Try out the captions on Flipgrid.
In this video you can see how the CAPTIONS work.
They could really help you see how clearly you’re speaking (how does the caption-generator pick up what you say?)
A line from a poem or song
A language you’d like to learn
An event that made you feel happy
An advertisement you like
An environmental problem near you
An interesting town in your country
A picture or painting you like

A crop grown in your country
A time when you were late
