Vokis are great for practising speaking skills with learners of all ages. Creating an animated character and giving it a voice is really fun to do and breaks down the inhibitions that learners often have when faced with recording themselves speaking in English.

There are so many possibilities for speaking activities with this website.  Plus, it's a cool way for kids to send someone to their parents.  A fun way to show that they've been working on their English speaking, which I've found tends to be the most difficult skill to work on.  Thanks!
