Then the recordings can listen to each news and answer questions about their partner’s radio news.

  16. 16. Peanut Gallery Films You don’t need to sign up. To get started, you just have to choose one of the films.
  17. 17. Peanut Gallery Films As you will be dictating the intertitles, you will need a microphone -most laptops have integrated microphones, and they work just fine- You will also need Google Chrome -As Peanut Gallery is a Chrome Experiment, you won’t be able to use another browser-

  20. 20. Peanut Gallery Films Useful Ideas ★ This webpage is great to practise storytelling.

Peanut Gallery Films You don’t need to log in * There’s no advertising * It’s easy to use and well structured * The site loads quickly and it’s visually appealing * You don’t need to download your movie * * You cannot access this website using any browser. * There aren’t many films to choose from. * This site wouldn’t work with young children, as old films may not be suitable for them. * You can’t correct what you’ve done, so you have to start all over again.
