I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue


This might be an interesting activity. In any event, can you help me name these languages? 23 of them. Need your help!

Also, play the Name the Language quizzes I made. Name the Language . Are you a polyglot?

I checked the list. The third one surely is not Persian(Farsi) as Persian is my mother tongue.:) Number 20 is Farsi.

Comment by Mohammad Reza Minoosepehr on April 25, 2011 at 7:45pm
The third one must be Arabic..( I think )

Comment by ddeubel on April 25, 2011 at 8:07pm

I think so too.   I'll let others change the list etc... and eventually it will get "solid" and correct. 


Thanks to all who have replied and helped out so far! Amazing and your reward will be a great version for instruction that I'll share in ppt shortly. Info. about each language + maps etc.. I'm working hard on it.

I added this powerpoint that teachers might use in class and find handy. 


Languages of the World.ppt

Comment by ddeubel on April 27, 2011 at 3:23am

This video (after the first minute) is great. A celebration of people from around the world, in all sorts of languages, singing and wishing Fiona a happy birthday. AMAZING.  As you watch - try to guess the languages! The world's most translated song, me thinks. 


Comment by ddeubel on April 28, 2011 at 4:27pm

I've added some games and a handy flash presentation . 



Play the games I've come up with so far also. Much easier!

1. Mini - 10 questions  2. Mini - 15 questions 3. Basic - 20 questions. 4. Full - 30 questions.

Can you reach Indiana Jones status? Are you a polyglot?

Also, use the "languages of the world" power point with info. about each language - for instruction. Here's the handy flash file of the same.
