Nice free app for CELTA course

Wibblet123

I downloaded this having recently enrolled on a CELTA course. I didn't have a clue about the phonemic chart but this app gives the sound and an example word. There are quizzes too with correct pronunciation. Will be very useful in class. Only 4 stars as the chart doesn't rotate on my iPhone 5c.

Brief/limited but very effective

Aiden Boyce

Great for revision and has many helpful tools, considering it is free it's well worth the time to use. Extremely simple but extremely useful. I'm certainly looking into purchasing the full version.

Half screen

Gionnilondon

Wonderful app. Useful Chart but the Practice section is not working properly on IPad because half screen is hidden and you can not go on.
