Greetings from Language Empires! Although we are divided into many kingdoms we are united in helping all learners of language. Each empire helps you master an important element of communication. You will find the right words can often unlock many closed doors and open up even more opportunities.
Language Empires was developed by two Speech-Language Pathologists and it utilizes the ancient civilizations theme to guide you and your students on learning specific language targets. This application designed for elementary age students targets 8 goals: Answering how, why, and which questions, inferencing, vocabulary, predicting and figurative language, and sequencing.
With an eye catching interface, animations and colorful graphics, students will triumph in developing language skills in areas for success in school.

Here are the basics of game play:
Select the players to start the game and then place each player on their target empire. Each empire targets a different skills set. Up to five players can be selected and each player can visit one or more empires at the same time. The possibilities are endless! Some empires have levels that allow for customizing the level of difficulty within each target. Each location has 50 questions for a total of 400 questions in the entire app. This is a truly comprehensive application. Each question contains an image that provides the context for the questions being asked. As the students answer the questions correctly, they earn rewards. The rewards are saved and can be accessed at any time on each student’s profile.

Data Tracking:
As with all Smarty Ears apps, Language Empire offers detailed and visual data collection. A set of graphs provides immediate visual feedback on the student’s skill level attained and progress towards mastery of their goal. The date can be emailed, printed, or shared to other compatible applications such as iBooks or Pages.

Targets 8 different goals;
Multiplayer: Play with up to 5 students at the same time
Data tracking capabilities – they can be emailed or saved on iBooks
Professional audio for each question
Settings can adjust app to meet student’s needs
Allows game play and data tracking on an unlimited number of students
Visual and auditory feedback for all questions

Ratings and Reviews

Pretty good app

Mary Lu hu

Good app, but I find the illustrations and format very visually distracting. Yes, having the medieval city theme is a creative and should boost interest by the kids, but it's too much and it makes it harder for the kids to focus. Also it would be nice if instead of requiring the therapist to first find the correct area on a medieval map and drag each child's icon to an area on the map to choose what language area you want to target, you could quickly check off what you want the child to work on and go. Might seem picky, but when you have such limited time as we do every minute counts. That said the app covers a lot of language skills that aren't being represented in other apps.

Dec 2014. Thank you smarty ears for update that allows user to turn off background scene! I'm adding a star to my review. Now if they'd just eliminate the guard laughing😁......

Great Comprehensive App!


This is a great comprehensive app to use in therapy. The kids love the knight theme and I love how many language skills you can work on at the same time. It's also nice that you can choose different levels for each skill. The trophies are good motivators for kids who have difficulty attending to and completing tasks.



By far one of my favorite speech and language apps to use. It is a multiplayer game that is great for working with mixed language groups. There are different levels of difficulty in the game and you can record all of your data on-line while playing the game! I highly recommend it!
