Ratings and Reviews
Fun but challenging
I tried out the beginning level and thought the vocabulary was a little challenging for ESL learners. Everything I listened to was monologue. There is one more or less generic photo for each listening but details are not illustrated. For example, one section was about squirrels. There was a picture of three squirrels in a nest, which supported the general concept but there were no photos of nesting materials which was also mentioned. I recommend this app for intermediate to advanced ESL learners.
Love Lite but...
I LOVE the Lite version, and my students love the challenge! But when I went to buy the premium version, words like "nudity", "profanity", "drug & alcohol" references kept me from getting it. Even if it's infrequent, I can't use that in my classroom. Clean it up, and I'll buy it!!
GREAT for secondary Language Imp Students
I am a speech-language pathologist who LOVES this app for working with my middle school language learning impaired students. They laugh at the in-app teacher's reaction to the mistakes - makes them try harder when I tell them, "Watch out, that teacher is mean!" Makes it more fun for them. Love the topic areas as well. Wish there were more listening training apps like these! I use it to work on helping them learn to support their listening with visualization of what they are hearing. I Wish it gave the options of also hearing/seeing the questions before the listening task since this would help them focus and listen for specific information.
