When users complete a lesson, their performance is displayed as a score.

Please note: Although there are several languages available to learn, users only are able to access a limited amount of content for free before having to make in-app purchases.

Instructional Ideas

  1. After teaching a lesson, teachers can have students complete a lesson in this app. When students complete their lesson, they can take a screen shot of their score and email it to their teacher.
  2. Teachers can have students work through a certain number of lessons per week. That way, by the end of a course, students have completed all the lessons for one language.
  3. After becoming familiar with the format this app uses to teach languages, teachers can have students model it to recreate questions using another app, such as Educreations or Notability. With these apps, students can draw or import images and then record their pronunciation of the words or phrases. The works students produce can be posted to a class website or emailed.
