KallyLang allows each pupil to work orally. The lab has various options for oral work, from a single reader to double reader and recording. Therefore, the pupils can listen, record themselves, repeat and translate an audio file, soundtrack from a video or even a text. Kallylang also offers the option of group debates, or teacher-led debate. Teacher-led debate can be recorded and then distributed for analysis.
Images linked to sound are an important tool for working with language and are useful in aiding comprehension. For this reason, KallyLang focuses on it to such an extent. Pupils can subtitle, dub, analyse and answer questions or equally complete a fill-in-the-blank exercise. Using their own webcam, integrated into all Apple computers, the pupils can teach themselves to communicate more dynamically and, for example, create a multimedia CV.
Text exercises Several text functions are available : perfected text editors, which can be used to complete fill-in-the-bank exercises, write essays, presentations...
KallyLang also offers a double text editor function particularly useful for translation thanks to its double window interface. Last but not least, the chat function allows conversations between one or more pupils, centered theme or question set by the teacher. Pupil output is collected and can then be evaluated. To finish, student exercises are personalized using a large number of fonts, characters and colors. Pupils are able to produce neat and tidy work.

On order to optimise Internet use, KallyLang creates more possibilities for use. Internet browsing can be unrestricted, limited to the learning institutionâs network, or equally be limited to specific hyperlink in order to minimise pupil distraction.
Appropriate communication Communication can be more attractive, as the teacher has various modes at is disposal text, sound and equally video. These variants allow for appropriate intervention in differing situations (advising, helping, group work, etc...)

Therefore the teacher may observe all pupils, discreetly listen to them individually or as a group, take screenshots remotely... Should it be necessary, ARD (Apple remote desktop) allows the teacher to control the pupil station. For maximum pupil focus, the teacher has the option of blocking all programs other than KallyLang.
The visualizer, a veritable media selection box Thanks to the visualizer, the teacher has yet another way of communicating and exchanging information whit the pupil. The famous visualiser function works like a selection box containing all the teaching supports (audio clips, video clips, images, sketches or photos) that can be used to enrich the pupilâs learning experience. The teacher may refer to the visualiser at any time.
Management and creation of working group This entirely digital laboratory has one primary has one primary aim : to improve all the levels of a class. Not all the pupils have the same abilities. By using working groups, the teacher can offer exercises adapted to the needs of each group, in order to gradually erase problems faced by each pupil during the language-learning process. Thanks to this facility, the teacher is able to offer more focused, adaptes attention to the individual needs of each group.
