*** FEATURED BY APPLE - #1 BEST NEW APP! ***
FreeSpeech is an app to learn the English language! Drag and rearrange picture tiles, and FreeSpeech will convert them into a perfectly grammatical English sentence.
Explore how tenses, sentence forms, parts of speech, and other grammatical properties change the structure of English -- and it's all visual!
FreeSpeech is the perfect app for anyone who is learning the English language - whether you are
- Learning English from a second language
- introducing someone to English grammar
- Teaching children English
Developed by an interdisciplinary team including SLPs, educators, and researchers with over 100 years of collective experience, FreeSpeech is the most advanced language learning technology currently available. The technology behind FreeSpeech was the subject of a TED talk by its creator Ajit Narayanan which has been viewed more than one million times. The development of FreeSpeech, combining engineering with generative linguistics, earned the team recognition as one of the world's Top 35 Innovators from MIT Technology Review.

"A powerful new app designed to help children of all learning levels and language abilities develop grammatically correct sentences... A welcome addition for anyone with young writers that struggle with arranging sentences or who have a language impairment that makes it frustrating to communicate."
FreeSpeech is unique because it's the only app in the world that predicts grammar. You can throw a bunch of picture tiles at it, and the app will automatically figure out a grammatically correct sentence from them.
- It's possible to manipulate words, tenses and structure as if you were manipulating building blocks.
- The app lets teachers and learners model/recast/contrast various grammar rules pictorially, all the while speaking out correct English.
FreeSpeech is based on solid research, and builds language by:
- EXPANDING: Prompting users with questions to expand their sentences;
- SCAFFOLDING: Intelligently predicting words that they are likely to use;
- CONTRASTING: Visually modeling tense and sentence modifiers;
- RECASTING: Automatically inserting prepositions and articles as needed; and
- ERRORLESS MODELING: Automatically predicting grammar, to assemble a map of pictures into a grammatically correct English sentence.
FreeSpeech features more than 2,000 symbols from Symbolstix, and is ideally suited to use alongside other AAC, articulation and education apps that use these lovely symbols.

Please help! Level 52 challenge coding glitch
Our family of 3 kids ages 15,13, and 7 are LOVING this app as a tool for building grammar skills. The challenge mode is engaging and fun for all ages, we love racing eachother but have hit a dead end 😥 it seems there is a problem with level 52 “Who is your mom’s uncle?” Comes up “Who is your mom’IO>’s uncle?” Making it impossible to complete the level or progress any further. Tried simply building the same sentence outside of challenge mode with the same results. Please fix this coding problem, we really want to continue using this wonderful app, well worth the money IF we can keep using it. With out this fix, no longer useful at all.
Great app to build language!
I use this with my kids who have language disorders and this app goes very far in helping them expand their language. I love it and it is a very well designed app! Well worth any price!
