Ratings and Reviews

Learning sound order of words


This is a great app for learning sound order of simple words. You can choose to have the letter name or letter sound spoken as the letter is touched, you can choose lowercase or uppercase letters, you can have the word spelt for you, you can skip to the word you want to practise on the word list. I love how there are progress reports for each of the vowel sounds learnt, and I love how you can reset the progress. It's great to be able to have multiple users for this app, and there are no in-app purchases or ads. I've given this a 4 star rating, only missing the last star because there are no options to customise for Australian dialect.
