Need to be able to create our own lessons and vocab practice lists.

In order to really make this platform powerful for classroom teachers, we need to be able to import lists of vocab from our classroom units so that the vocab being learned, practiced, and taught align better with our curriculum. Also, I would love to be able to choose papas fritas instead of the Castillian patatas fritas, etc.

Own vocab? "Memrise Decks" or AnkiSRS with:

  • a proper spaced repetition interval
  • L1 English -> L2 target language translations/recall practice
  • turned off multiple-choice / tapping
  • self rating answer buttons (AnkiSRS) or typing (Memrise web portal with "all typing" Tampermonkey userscript)

Memrise (web) gives you a concrete backlog queue of due words


Recently I stumbled across a new classroom feature on www.lingvist.com

Have you checked it out what level of customization it accepts?

..(...)..

You need to find a way not only to use single words but supporting cloze deletion (full example sentences of varaying difficulty with one word missing).

And if you do this, you run into the usual "Duolingo translation problem") that more than only one word (missing synonyms) or multiple variations of a sentence should be accepted.

I have no idea how you can solve this without "creating your own Incubator course" on Duolingo and "manually adding alternative sentence answers".

Memrise at least supports you in adding more than one alternative answer for a single word.
