I am Zahinah Zahoor from Govt.Comprehensive High School. Computer science is introduced as a subject from grade six. I want to integrate the subject with spoken english.I invite all in the community to suggest different activities for this pupose. I will also welcome suggestions about how to plan these activities for a three-month smester. I will be waiting for your suggestions, and will be thankful for your support.
Here is the link for more information about Rosetta Stone. I'm not sure how it impacts standardized test scores, but I know it's designed to improve the spoken language. Hope this helps! >http://www.rosettastone.com/
I am using Rosetta Stone right now to learn Spanish. I like it so far. It uses pictures and gestures to help you figure out the meaning of words, rather than just translating things into another language. The program's supposed to help you learn the language the way you do when you're a baby, by seeing and experiencing things. You also have to speak back into a microphone to practice your pronunciation skills. So far, I think I am learning alot! We also used the program at the school district where I used to work to help students from other countries learn English.
Dear Zahinah, are you looking for activities to do in Computer Science that will help improve the students skills in English? Is it combining Computer Science with English or just learning English? Sorry for so many questions, I'm just thinking of different activities that might help.
