  25. 25. Student Feedback • I really liked having it, and I'm excited to hear my host's voice on the website. It'll be a good way to remember her. • My favorite part about the Zens was the ability to listen to Russian radio whenever. I often listened to the Zen around the city or at night just to hear Russian being spoken. I felt it was very easy and user-friendly.
  26. 26. Student Feedback • While it was a good idea my host student was a bit uncomfortable doing it. • The Zen was an interesting addition to the exchange, but in my opinion, it was an unnecessary component.
  27. 27. Student Feedback • I used the Zen to listen to music both on the plane ride there and home, and also to record conversations with my host brother Lasha about free time for the class assignment. I also used it to record a monologue about the Peter & Paul's Fortress. I found it very easy to set up and use once I became used to navigating the menus. • It was really easy and fun. I could listen to music, look at videos/photos and record my voice and host family's voices.
  28. 28. Student Feedback • It was really easy to use and neat that we could record our host student and families in a conversation. I think that using these recorders were really helpful to us and to the students at GHS because they could also listen to our conversations. • It was really easy to use and neat that we could record our host student and families in a conversation.
