In the early years of learning languages, many teachers can struggle to get their students to speak and let go of their fear of making mistakes. I used to be one of those teachers until I started using Adobe Voice (standout.adobe.com/voice) in my classes. Using this app, my students find it easy to create videos in a presentation-like style, and record their voice for each slide. Compared to other similar apps, I have found this app to be the most useful because it is designed in a way that forces learners to focus on language production rather than waste their time on formatting and animation, and the product is always worthwhile. The app can be used for many kinds of language learning projects: reflecting, setting future goals, learning vocabulary, IELTS and MFL speaking and a lot more.
