Literacy is a difficult process for students. Increasing the quantity and quality of the practice material helps: meaning investing far more time, energy and willingness to practice. DigLin+ provides this!

 

DigLin+ is a digital literacy method for non-native young people and adults.

The method is designed in such a way that any unskilled language learner can use it and still learn language and the Latin script in a mature and independent way. This program not only provides the students with input, but also with immediate feedback. The exercises offered are challenging and have a constructive structure: gradually directing the students to work from sounds, to words, to sentences, and finally towards short texts, all the while supported by image and sound.

 

DigLin+ holds two important starting points: the first being autonomous learning, and the second being implicit learning. The language learner navigates more and more independently through the program and keeps track of his work and schedules and progress himself. Through built-in patterns in the excercises, he/she is implicitly made receptive to regularity in language.

 

Students who used DigLin+ experienced it as a pleasant and secure method to work with, stating that it motivates them to think for themselves.

 

Workbook

With the digital method, the paper workbooks Samen werken in de klas. A, B, C en lezen 1 and Samen werken in de klas. Lezen 2, 3 en 4 can be bought separately. These books offer questions, tips and evaluation forms to deepen students’ learning and processing of information in class. 

Through using these workbooks, you maximize your learning potential with DigLin+. The workbooks are not included in the digital package and should be ordered separately.

 

Instructional videos and teachers' manual

DigLin+ provides teachers with a number of short instructional videos of its use. One of the creators, Ineke van de Craats, appears in the videos and explains the functioning and use of the program within the classroom, its various components, as well as how your students can get started. In addition, there is an extensive teachers' manual for DigLin+.

Content

DigLin+ offers many different types of exercises for different components, such as sounds and letters, spelling, listening and writing. The platform also contains forms of exercise such as bingo and memory, as well as a number of themes, such as transport, leisure time and health, that offer themed words through context.

Level

DigLin+ is intended for students who are illiterate, semi-illiterate or literate in a language not based upon Latin script, and/or have not yet reached level A1.

Target audience

DigLin+ provides practice material for several groups of learners, but is primarily intended for anyone who, after adolescence, first learns a new second language other than the mother tongue. Further, DigLin+ offers and practices the sounds in Dutch. In this way, the program is useful for every NT2 learner, especially targeting those who still have to learn the Latin script as well as the new pronunciation rules.
