Learning a second language may be a fun adventure in the emerging technology era. Activities might become interactive for students that use technology on every day basis. "The way that students will learn to do applied linguistics with technology is by learning applied linguistics through technology" (Chapelle 2003: 31) In addition, it might give teachers the opportunity to implement activities at distance and complement face to face courses allowing students the opportunity to be exposed to the language in different ways.
Activity instructions:
Concluding, technology might be used in foreign language teaching as a tool that might complement and reinforce not only grammatical abilities such as comparative and superlatives, but might also complement the learning of oral abilities as well. Thus, it "can make a significant contribution to SLA process because the students themselves feel that they are interacting with the computer in a real social manner" (Kramsch 2013: 3)
IN PAIRS DO THE FOLLOWING PRESENTATION WITH PREZI.
Make a list of 10 sentences comparing in a variety of ways for example: a place to visit, teachers, friends, transportation, houses or apartments, technology etc.
