The Hemingway App

Standard

Elisa started using The Hemingway App with some of her MA TESOL assignments, and thought others might find it useful.  Just click on “write”, copy and paste your text where the grey sample text is, and click “edit”.  It’s quite accurate, I found.

This would be useful if you have a story that you want to test with your students, or if you have a class that’s not following the curriculum normally.  You could also check the students’ writing so they can see what level they’re at (though I’d only recommend this for Levels 4 and 5).

As for writing like Hemingway… well, why in heaven’s name would you want to do that?!  Timothy Findley: we all want to write like Timothy Findley. 🙂
