Blended learning is an approach to learning that combines face-to-face and online learning experiences.

Blended Learning

Are you experimenting with blended learning and the flipped classroom approach? Try ESL Library's new interactive Listen & Type task. With your Standard or Plus subscription, you can now assign this task to your students for homework or in-class work (with headphones). Your students can do the interactive task on any mobile device or computer.

If you're an ESL Library subscriber, your students are likely familiar with this task type because many of our topical paper-based lessons have a similar gap-fill task. Now, in addition to getting reading, listening, and spelling practice, your students can improve their digital literacy.

Note: The Listen & Type task doesn't have to be used as a final task in a reading lesson. It can be assigned as a preview task, a review task, or an assessment or diagnostic task. It's also useful for students who want extra homework practice. Other parts of our lessons, such as discussion questions, surveys, and role‑plays, are more suitable for face‑to‑face, in‑class work.

Assign Homework

Go to the reading lesson of your choice and toggle to Digital. Then choose Manage Homework and assign the Listen & Type task with the due date of your choice to the class of your choice.

Task Features

The Listen & Type task features the main reading and audio recording from a reading‑based ESL Library lesson. As students listen to the recording they can follow along with the text and type in the missing words.

Review

After students complete the Listen & Type task, they can listen again and review any mistakes they made.

View Results

As a teacher, you will see your students' Listen & Type results on your Homework page after they complete the task.
