Toondoo is a free website to create cartoon with a wide selection of scenes, characters, and text boxes that support multiple languages, including Chinese Mandarin.
In this high school intermediate Chinese Mandarin class, the students learned how to describe traveling experience. Instead of asking the students to simply write sentences or a paragraph to describe their traveling experience, the teacher introduced Toondoo.
In this Toondoo project, students selected the layout of their cartoon story. Then, they picked their characters and scenes. Their stories are told with text boxes on each picture. This writing practice provides the students with an interesting context and allow the students to visualize their writing.
In addition to writing, all students are required to read a cartoon from one classmate and prepare to discuss in class the content, writing style and artistic effect.
