The students in years 3-6 have greatly enjoyed playing the online Kahoot quiz to assess their learning about families and related vocabulary. Kahoot allows them to find out what they know, and to identify their point of need. “Ghost mode” gives them the opportunity to improve on their previous score! Kahoot allows students the opportunity to work with their peers and share their Italian language knowledge. Kahoot is always a very popular element of our Italian sessions.
Here are some of the students’ reflections on Kahoot:
