ConversationBuilderTeen is a teen version of the popular and award winning ConversationBuilder virtual conversation simulator. It is designed to help teenaged children learn how to have multi-exchange conversations with their peers in a variety of social settings. The auditory pattern of conversation is presented in a visual format to help students recognize and master the flow of conversation.
Students learn when it is appropriate to introduce themselves, ask questions, make observations and change the subject of the conversation. They will also learn how to recognize sarcasm and how to respond when someone is bullying them or someone around them.
The student will be asked to initiate conversation, respond to conversations initiated by others or participate in group conversations. Students will be guided through conversations and allowed to record and save their conversations for later playback and study. Conversations are grouped into eight themes. The themes are school, relationship, sports, entertainment, bullying, sarcasm, clothes, and summer.
Being able to converse with peers is the cornerstone of developing relationships, and ConversationBuilderTeen™ promotes development of this skill in a fun and engaging way.

What's New in Version 1.3
Added password protection to three conversations.
better than child version, love it
if you've purchased the version for younger kids you should know that this version provides more specific explanations for "incorrect" answers", a big improvement in my book.
I noticed one reviewer complained about explicit content, but perhaps was not aware that adult controls are available to lock the teen out of explicit content. I like the option to use the drug/alcohol/sex related conversations. Teens are exposed to conversations like "i cant believe I cant believe i slept with him" on tv or movies if not in real life. By having this material available it opens the door to discussion about those topics, even if the teen is not exposed to those types of conversations personally. Obviously professionals would seek parent agreement before on explicit content.
This app has it all. I use it with teenagers with hearing loss. It allows for auditory comprehension work, has written stimuli to be paired with auditory, allows for speech practice and students' use of taped responses for making judgements and corrections. The pragmatics work is the icing on the cake. For my students, some of the speech is too rapid. I wish I could change the rate of speech in settings but overall it is a fabulous therapy tool.
Love this app!
This has great and relevant topics for teenagers. This is a helpful tool to teach conversation skills and expand conversations and discussions. I like the multiple choice and ability to record the voices so that they can be sent to others. It's also great for articulation practice!!
