    The Language Menu site for teachers

    This website was created by language teachers for language teachers. We want to make life a bit easier for you! We do this by providing worksheet generators and other tools to help you create teaching materials. Use pictures from our clipart gallery and translations from our bilingual materials. Be creative and custom-design your own exercises. We are in the process of developing a database of materials where you can download grammar and vocabulary exercises in PDF format for use in class. During 2006 we will be adding worksheets in several new languages to this database. Now you can make worksheets in 31 languages: Arabic, Bahasa, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch , English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Macedonian, Mandarin, Pinyin, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Vietnamese. Mixing and matching these language options can give you up to 1860 language combinations when making bilingual material! To be added in 2006-2007: Albanian, Bosnian, Catalan, Farsi, Hindi, Indonesian, Korean, Latin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maori, Montenegrin, Norwegian, Pashto, Slovak, Slovene, Somalian, Swahili,Thai, Ukrainian, Urdu and Uzbek. http://www.thelanguagemenu.com/

    Biography: Veronica Gilhooly

    Swedish teacher. Language training in companies and government institutes ie Business Swedish and conversation I have operated a language training/translation company since 1999. Our company has around 20 freelance teachers and translators working for us. We are based in Helsinki, Finland Our latest addition to the business is a website for teachers with tools (to make worksheets). The reason behind this website is that we have very limited resources on the Internet in the Swedish language, so I decided to hire some people to help me implement my idea. A couple artists are drawing pictures we add to our clipart gallery, and then we tadd these words in different languages to our tools. Week 33 (2006) we will add another 16 languages to our website, this means you will be able to make bilingual material in 30 different languages with pictures or without. This site is a aimed for teachers who teach vocabulary with pictures, crosswords, wordsearches, games etc. Our tools enables you to easily print our differet worksheets each time. We are hiring teachers of different languages to help us develop the grammar material bank over the next 2 years. Our aim is to have about 40 languages (some less common languages as these are the languages that don't have a lot of resources in the Internet), over 3000 pictures and about 30 different tools.
