Extended activities reinforce the key features of communicative language teaching outlined in Chapter 1, What does Moodle offer language teachers?. In particular, they:

  • Create more opportunities for iterative work, which, with appropriate feedback from teachers, can further develop language skills

  • Allow us to incorporate a variety of feedback types
