What our users say...

"More than just another tool"

ZenGengo is so user-friendly that my students were able to submit high quality video presentations the second day of an online presentation skills class.

More than just another tool, ZenGengo complements a learning management system by its ease of use for both instructor and student.  

When we resume classroom teaching, ZenGengo will be equally useful as an adjunct to in-person learning.

"My "prize find" of the year!"

ZenGengo is my “prize find” of the year!  It solves 2 problems:

1) It saves teachers valuable time while creating meaningful language exercises

2) It provides a wide variety of exercises for students to practice speaking, listening comprehension, vocabulary, and sentence structure

The Audio Recording assignment type has excellent sound quality, and makes pronunciation assessment easy.

The Text to Test assignment type gives immediate feedback on both vocabulary and word order, and students love seeing each sentence highlighted as it is read to them by a native speaker sounding voice.

"A win-win scenario in the classroom"

With Video Gap Fills, many students commented that they lost track of time because they were so focussed on listening and typing.

With the Audio Recording assignment, students can record themselves several times and then submit the recording that represents their best work.

Whether I want my students to practice reading, writing, speaking or listening, ZenGengo is an easy to use platform that creates a win-win scenario in the classroom.

"ZenGengo is a very useful site"

Having a timer and word count on the Written Report activity is great for preparing students for TOEFL writing conditions.

In addition, being able to copy a link to an activity is incredibly convenient and a big time saver.

Overall, ZenGengo is a very useful site, and I'm very grateful for the time and energy that has gone into making it user friendly.

"Students can access a range of activities with a simple link"

ZenGengo has been useful in supplementing the textbook I use. Students can access a range of activities with a simple link, and the results can be easily downloaded to a spreadsheet.

I also use voice dictation activities and audio recording to make sure my students do some speaking practice for homework.
