I have a blog on language learning called The Linguist on Language, and an online language learning community called, where people around the world help each other learn.

My questions are

1) can we use the sound file of your interview as content in our library?

2) do you have a transcript?

All resources in our library are accessed and used free of charge and without restriction.

Steve Kaufmann

Dear Steve,

By all means include this interview in your library. Could you please provide a link to this blog though so that listeners can find out where it has come from?

There is no transcript unfortunately, but the detailed summary should help comprehension.

Cheers and thank you for your comment.

Wonderful post and interview. I have taught or tutored foreign language learners (both romance languages and germanic languages including english) for several years, and have long been a proponent of using technology and "thinking outside the box" even before it was "cool" to do so.

I am glad that more and more, using technology to its fullest potential in an educational setting is catching on as it really does help on so many levels.

Hi Heather,

Thanks for your comment. Delighted you found the interview interested. I'm sure Esther would be delighted!

Dear All

Yes, thank you for the encouragement. It is good to be part of an ever growing network of teachers who are using technology to aid learning.

FYI I have made public the Assistante Virtuelle for Capel Primary School:

We have focused on the Literacy strand of the KS2 Framework for Languages so far, but with the addition of a Podcast we will work towards addressing the Oracy strand too. It's a work in progress but will continue with the new cohort of FLA's in the Autumn term 2009.

Since the interview I have also managed to get our MFL department blog off the ground at Weald of Kent Grammar School:

Best regards

Esther Hardman

This is brilliant Esther. I've added the RSS feed to the virtual assistant blog in my Google Reader. Looking forward to seeing how it is used in the future.

Good luck with your podcasting adventures!
