Student Practice Ideas

While there is NO AVAILABLE ELPA practice testing, it is essential that your students have some time to get used to using technology in a language learning and assessment environment. Please have your ESL teachers incorporate strategies that will assist them in feeling confident in their computer skills - including speaking into headphones and recording their voice digitally (especially regarding volume and enunciation). Consider the following programs for supplemental instruction:

1. Rosetta Stone

2. Imagine Learning

3. DuoLingo

4. WeSpeke
