Earphones with microphone for French class!

By this Thursday, March 26

Bonjour Parents!

We are getting ready to launch as our class learning tool this week! is a web-based language learning tool that puts together grammar, vocabulary, listening and speaking skills all into one trackable, fun learning tool.  Students will create a profile using their domain but will not have access to use this e-mail.  It is only for creating a trackable learning profile.  Only LGCA Tech Support and I will be able to get into the e-mail (in case the student forgets their password and has to reset it).  

Students are not permitted to "follow" other students or learners on duolingo.  This strict prevention is to ensure safety of your child--and keep their learning focussed on the course material!

Please ensure that your child has a set of earphones that have a microphone attached (headset or earbud style is fine).  The set provided with my cell phone is what I use. PLEASE LABEL THE EARPHONE/MICROPHONE SET CLEARLY, as they will be kept at school in a location-secured box between lessons.  This is to ensure no "I forgot them" will prevent participation in class:)

Thanks for your support!

Bonne journée,

Madame Pelz
