The Scotsman, WordPress, YouTube, and Ipadio

Here’s a piece from The Scotsman – 10/07/10 – about some of my project work. Many thanks to Seon C Caimbeul – first for writing it and then for permission to reproduce it here.

English summary: Video and audio production for language learning need not be prohibitively expensive. The Island Voices project, capturing natural language from outside the classroom, covers many different topics and situations, with video material available on YouTube for ease of access. And now the blog also includes audio material captured by phone. This facilitates participation by fluent speakers who may have little interest in literacy per se.

Comments welcome – in English or Gaelic!
