I've been teaching English as a foreign language around the world for the past 5 years. I would like to develop an app that allows ESL students to improve their English outside of the classroom in an enjoyable and useful way. I currently teach over 100 students per week and feel I have the perfect testing ground to make an application that is enjoyable and useful for ESL learners.
Skeleton of the idea:
*Students will have access to this app on their mobile phone/ipad
*The app will pair them with another student of the same skill level (e.g. B2) ideally from a different native country to allow for English to be the only language for them to able to communicate with one another.
*There will be 3 different activity modes
- Multiple Choice (Time attack)
- Find the solution (Co-op)
- Learn who your partner is (Student's ask each other questions to answer questions they've been given)
So basically.. students login, get matched with another student their level and complete tasks together under timed conditions to collect points.
The app should have a built in messenger so that students can communicate with one another while working together.
can you help me make this a reality?
