Teachers create spoken dialogues, dictations, pronunciation practice, oral exams, reading practice, image or video commentary, etc. Registration required.

Evaluation: A useful and time-saver tool for teachers to effectively assess students’ language ability. It has high flexibility and can be used with Youtube videos, voice recording and uploading images. IT skills required mainly depend on the type of task you are uploading on Lingt, but, in general, average IT knowledge will do for use of the tool.
