As many of you know, one of my post-retirement gigs is creating content for FluentKey.com.  For those of you that are not familiar with FluentKey, it is a tool that allows language teachers to upload videos and create quizzes with a variety of question types.  In addition, FluentKey also includes hundreds of Featured videos that have a transcript and computer-graded quiz questions. (The transcripts and quiz questions are where I come in.) A basic subscription to FluentKey is free and there is also a Pro subscription that includes additional features.

If you’re interested in learning more about FluentKey here’s a link to the FAQs and another link to a blog post explaining some differences between FluentKey and Edpuzzle. 

I really enjoy my work at FluentKey and find it has been a great way to keep my language skills fresh since I am no longer in the classroom.  A couple of weeks ago it occurred to me that it might be helpful if I created a document which lists some possible thematic units for each level and links to existing FluentKey videos for each of these topics.  The current document includes possible themes for Levels 1-3 but I’ll be adding Level 4 and 5 in the next couple of weeks. As this link shows, the document includes an Essential Question for each unit, along with one or more Can-Do statements and some relevant vocabulary topics and contexts.  

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!

    What a wonderful resource tool! I just discovered FluentKey in June thanks to Samantha Decker of The French Corner @sdeckerlote and was looking to create a similar chart for myself. Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for sharing so graciously the resources that you have developed . The document that you shared on FTUS fb page with the Fluentkey videos organized by theme is invaluable. I am putting together a list of resources to share with my colleagues. Do you know if there is a similar document that you or one of your Fluentkey colleagues developed for Spanish? I searched the facebook groups and internet without success.

    Thank you! I can only imagine the time that went into creating that document. Greatly appreciated by this French teacher!

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to enter Fluent Key as a Teacher. The site keeps assuming I am a student and demanding I enter my teacher’s number or something.

    I would love to use the site but is there a different way to enter the site as a teacher? So I can use the free resources? Thank you.
