Adventure in E-Mail

Reading for the sheer fun of it is an important step forward in the quest for English fluency. At Brian & Neko's Place we've deployed a novel technology and an old ruse, curiosity, to bring students one step closer. Check out our unique E-Mail Odyessy, a quest of another kind that just might set readers on the right path.

 
Teachers
The content at Brian & Neko's Place is multimedia enabled. Moreover, it is "conversation-enabled". The old model of one student working silently on one computer is fine for some things: Mind-numbing grammar exercises, for instance.

For learning conversation, nothing beats conversing.

For that reason, most activities at Brian & Neko's Place are optimized for discussion. That's right, DISCUSSION in the language lab. In some cases that means putting two or more students on one monitor. At other times students will be required to fly solo first, then turn off the monitor, circulate in the language lab and share their multimedia experience through the magic of language. Yes, talking! How high tech!

That's how we put the LANGUAGE back in the laboratory. Follow up activities are also included. Teachers can move the discussion back to the classroom after the computer session has finished.

When you first click on an activity you may be automatically prompted to download the free Macromedia Shockwave and Flash browser plug-ins. Alternatively, click the links [bottom left] to upgrade your browser before setting out to explore Brian & Neko's Place. According to Macromedia, about 99% of browsers are already Flash enabled and some 50% are Shockwave capable already.
