USING WEB 2.0 TOOLS FOR ESP VOCABULARY DRILL

S. Roney, J. Allan

College of the north Atlantic (QATAR)
Inevitably, learning a language involves a great deal of memorization. Many find this difficult and painful; nor does such drill really require a teacher to be present. Computers, on the other hand, endless in their patience, are ideal for this. At College of the North Atlantic—Qatar, we are using a variety of tools freely available on the WWW to cut through the boredom factor, and to allow students to accomplish self-paced vocabulary drill on their own time.

This talk demonstrates our system and the tools we use, and attempts to evaluate the results we have achieved. Included are the following Web 2.0 packages: Quia Web, Classtools, Content Generator, Quizlet, Spelling City, Hot Potatoes, WidgetBox, Google Gadgets, Impress, ImTranslator, ChronMe, Abrakadoodle, QuickFlashGames, and, to return continuous feedback, SurveyGizmo. All are available free on or from the Internet, and so can be set up anywhere at any school at no cost.
