Taking inspiration from other similar apps for language learning, I’m preparing to add a new feature to Speaking Lab/Cafe, which I will call DRILL. The goal of DRILL is to make learners speak fluently and spontaneously, starting with sentences. In each drill session, users can choose the number of sentences they want to practice. Then for each sentence, they will be able to hear a sample recording, after which they will repeat the sentence twice — one with the full sentence and one with missing words. In future releases, progress of users will be monitored and used to match sentences to their appropriate levels.
