SIMON McLAUGHLIN @simcloughlin 'JE M'APPELLE CLAUDE' - A QUICK INTRO TO AUDIOBOO.FM
Simon‘s talk was hilarious and informative – most unfair, given his own admittance of a lack of preparation, but brilliant to listen to. He started with a clip of Joey from Friends ‘speaking’ French to illustrate how what we say and what pupils hear are often two completely different things. Simon suggests that audioboo.fm is an excellent way of getting around this, whereby pupils can record themselves and hear how they are pronouncing it. He uses the Audioboo app on his phone and immediately uploads recordings to the website.
