3 Steps to Fast ESL Results
Step 1: Prepare the brain
Sounds of the world’s languages differ greatly, e.g., English has 44 phonemes and Spanish has 21. By 6 months old, your students’ brains are wiring to sounds of a language other than English. Our software uniquely targets the phonemes of English to build the foundational skills required for all literacy. With brains “wired” for English, listening comprehension and all language development happens faster and easier.
Step 2: Practice English skills, intensively
Using game-like technology designed by neuroscientists, your students complete 1000s of trials practicing grammar, academic vocabulary and listening comprehension skills needed for fast English language development improvement – more practice than is achieved by other interventions or teacher-directed work. Our exercises infinitely adapt to each student to keep them motivated, but challenged just enough.
Step 3: Read English aloud, with support
Students need to apply their newly learned language fundamentals as they read texts aloud. Your students get non-judgemental support from the only software that uses speech recognition technology to “listen” to their English pronunciation, decoding, etc., offering support just when they need it. It includes over 300 non-fiction and fictional reading selections across genres with embedded vocabulary support.
