Sound English® apps allow students to practise reading in privacy, and in their own time.
The apps present the same text and pictures used in the books and CDROM-based software. The student taps the speaker icon to hear the whole page read. Each word is underlined while it is spoken by a human voice.
A single word can be heard by tapping on it. It will be spoken in a diffferent voice to that used for the sentence. This provides extra aural clues and variations that help students clarify nuances in the sounds.
In Levels 1A (books 1-10) and 1B (books 11-20), if this word contains the phoneme featured in the book it will be spoken first, then the whole word.
System requirements: iOS 4.3 or later
