Foreign Languages, Food & Podcasting

In effort to keep the tradition of foreign languages in Language Academy, my morning mixed group of 6th-8th graders  created a Food Podcast of their favorite foods. The project required them to find an audio translator on the Internet of their foreign language of choice. Some students used Babylon and others used Forvo for language translation. Then they created slides on PowerPoint of their favorite foods. Using GarageBand, they put together the slides and created a podcast translating the food into their foreign language. It was a multitasking lesson that required students to use various software to produce a foreign language project. Students choose languages ranging from Tagalog, to Swahili, to Arabic.
