Voki and thinglink is an easy-to-use tool for creating speaking avatars that can be posted to any website. Speaking avatars are entertaining and funny and they can easily substitute the teacher in the classroom attracting students’ attention. There is a wide range of voices the teacher can choose from or he/she can use their own voice. This tool proved to be quite effective in the classroom, since the student’s attention was fully occupied by avatar’s voice and they answered a great number of questions in very a short time.The lesson was organised in the following way: Firstly, the teacher chose an avtar and inserted a text which described previously learned characters without revealing their/ characters names. The students task was to match the character with the right text. In the end, the student with the most correct answers was the winner.
