Writing your own Spanish Dictionary as a Collaborative Task

Business students at the University of Newcastle taking Spanish as beginners have been working together to identify language which is a priority for their course and record it as a dictionary on a wiki. The students choose the language they see as being of high value to their needs, and develop their wiki dictionary entries (available remotely) in their own time using a template. Vocabulary can be found within the course materials or anywhere else. Students share their work on the wiki to improve, complete, or modify each other’s entries. All contributions are checked by the tutor for accuracy and suggestions are made to improve entries.
