Language learning can be intimidating for many students. With its uncluttered interface, innovative tools, and seamless textbook-technology integration, the Supersite will help you reach students and build their love of language in a safe digital space.

Engaging media

Episodic storyline videos, authentic short films, synchronous video chat activities, audio-sync readings, and audio by native speakers ... the Supersite has it all.

Powerful course management

Choose what you use and how you use it. With the Supersite, you can easily shape our curriculum to fit your instructional goals and teaching preferences.

Enhanced support

Get all the guidance you need to use the Supersite to its fullest potential—from face-to-face presentations and weekly training webinars by fellow educators, to pre-recorded videos on a variety of topics.

Make language and culture come alive

With a focus on building proficiency, the Supersite provides students with a safe, engaging place to connect their own lives with the authentic, contemporary language and culture of the target language.

Communication tools

To become effective communicators, students need opportunities to interact with one another in the classroom and online. The Supersite provides a safe social space for developing students' interpersonal and presentational communication skills.

Video Virtual Chat

These activities provide students with opportunities to develop their listening and speaking skills and to build confidence as they practice with recordings of native speakers.

Partner Chat

These activities allow students to carry out a conversation in pairs via video or audio. This synchronous chat tool provides for the elements of true interpersonal communication: conversational collaboration, spontaneity, creativity, and negotiation of meaning.

Forums

Online discussion boards where students can post text or audio information and respond to their classmates’ posts. They are a great tool for providing your students with opportunities to engage asynchronously.

 

Interactive grammar tutorials

Research shows that a little humor engages students, stimulates the brain, and helps with memory retention. Interactive grammar tutorials entertain and inform students by pairing grammar rules with fun explanations and examples. Available for Spanish, French, German and Chinese programs.

 
 
 
 

Vocabulary tools

Students can take control of their language learning by working with personalized vocabulary lists for each lesson. Interactive flashcards featuring target language words with audio and the English translation are available for fast and effective review and practice.

Grading tools

Convenient options for grading include spot checking, student-by-student, and question-by-question approaches. Plus, in-line editing tools and voice comments provide additional opportunities for targeted feedback.
