Hi Everyone!

This week I added audio to my website:
Learn English with Pictures
http://www.my-english-dictionary.com

Learn English with Pictures (and Audio) is a free, online,
resource to learn English words in a fun way.

The site has over 400 words and photographs, ranging from
animals to kitchen appliances. Beneath each photograph,
there is an audio button to click and hear the word.

Both kids and adults, who are learning English, will find this
educational website valuable and entertaining.

I welcome your feedback.

Have a good day,
Jacob

Hi jrichman,

They're really nice clear audio recordings. I think as your vocabulary library grows, you'll find it increasingly difficult to manage your images and audio files. I'd recommend integrating them, as soon as possible, with a learning management system. You don't have to be a programmer to run one - they're designed for teachers - and they have a whole host of other benefits.

I'm currently using Moodle, an open source (free) application that's also used by a large and growing number of schools and universities, including the UK's Open University, around the world:

http://moodle.org/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moodle

If you have problems installing Moodle 1.9.* on your server, then try an earlier version such as Moodle 1.8.*. Moodle 1.9.* has some scripts in it that exceed some servers' limits. It depends on your hosting provider.

There's a demo course that allows guest access on my site: http://matbury.com/moodle/ I keep the rest private because a lot of my students use it and I have to maintain their privacy.

P.S. No, I don't work for them!
