Info for Teachers

Why it works

With Think Bilingual, students learn a language by immersing themselves in scenarios such as cooking, dressing up, or driving a car. Listening and speaking in the target language while doing these activities guides the student to think in a new language! With the full version of Think Bilingual, both teachers and student sign in to track progress. There are now recorded speaking levels so students can practice without fear and teachers can check students' work!

How to Use

Getting Started:

  1. Classroom modes require the full version of Think Bilingual:
    Download for iPads
  2. Click the Log in button at the top left to create an account or sign in
    Log in menu
    • If this is the first time, create a teacher account. Create New User > Select "Are you a new teacher?" > Create a name and password (of at least four characters) > Create and name classes. You will still be logged in.
    • Each of your students should also create an account searching for you as their teacher and joining one of the classes you have set up

Get started with immersion!

    Picking a level
  1. Students and teacher all open the same level (for example, "house 1-1").
  2. Pointing to Word Book button
  3. Introduce the words for the level. Tap on the word book to see what words and structures will be in that level.
  4. Click the green arrow
  5. Go into "play mode" to show the words
  6. If you have a projector, project the words and have the class repeat.
  7. For best results, do the immersion exercise after the class has worked a bit with the words. Here are some ideas:
    • Test the students by saying the words and having them point or mimic the words. (TPR)
    • Have the students review the words on their iPads.
    • Project the words without text and have the class call out the words
    • Make sure the class is ready! Ask the students if they are ready to be challenged, or if they want to practice more. For the immersion, you will be speaking to them in full sentences in the target language so the students need to be confident with the vocabulary.

Listening Immersion

    Circled Write Tool and narration
  1. You, as the teacher, will tap the "write tool" (circular button with a pen) to see the narration.
  2. Circled Write Tool and narration
  3. You will say the narration out loud to the class. For example, "Open the door."
  4. Image displaying narration number
  5. Students will follow along on their iPads, tapping and swiping left to open the door.
    • Be sure students are following along and keep everyone the same narration number!
    • (Students' iPads will automatically grade their answer.)
  6. Pick a narration to match back up
  7. If a student is on the wrong narration, he/she can change it by tapping on the narration number.

Speaking Immersion:

In Speaking Immersion, the students say what they see.

The students will watch the robot and "say" what they "see"

Here is the whole process:

  • Prompt your students to click the robot as a class (or project it on a screen)

  • The class watches as the robot performs an action
  • All together, prompt the class to say what happened

  • In later stages, the teacher will ask students questions about the pictures.

    Pair Speaking

    1. For pair practice, the students will talk to each other.
    2. Two students open the same level. (Make sure students are confident with the words.)
    3. One student in each pair is "speaker", the other one is the "listener".
    4. The "speaker" taps the robot button...
    5. Watches the robot...
    6. And then the "speaker" tells the "listener" what to do.
    7. The student is successful if the listner scores five stars for the level.
