After pairing with a school, the languages teacher uploads their class lists, who are then matched with native speaker ‘Bili-pals’ abroad. The teacher creates a topic for students, setting weekly written, or multimedia tasks (using pictures, video and audio). The teacher can create the topic from scratch or adapt an existing one from the shared topic bank.
After securely logging in and creating their profiles, students start on their tasks according to the deadline set by their teacher. Once complete the task is sent to their teacher to approve, in which case the message are sent directly to their partner student. Alternatively, the teacher may decide that the student has not given an appropriate response, and send it back to the student with comments and a new deadline to redraft.
Students receive their partner’s work, highlight any spelling, grammar, omission or wrong words using our marking code and write any comments to support their marking. Finally, the student responds to the content in their own language, the marking and their response is reviewed by their teacher and sent to their partner. The teacher at this point can print the class tasks, with the feedback to redraft or translate in books or simply for a record of their work.

With Bili, my students can write in English, and forget they are learning. They can be experts in French and learners in English. They can build a relationship across languages in a completely secure environment. They want pals and I want security! Bili gives us what we need!Isabelle Julienne, English Teacher, Collège St Michel Rosporden
Bili provides an excellent opportunity for our students to engage in conversations in their target language with peers of their own age. Our students have enjoyed using it so far and look forward to communicating further!George Harvie, Spanish Teacher, Harris Academy Tottenham
