Prepare the brain to “hear” English. With a brain “wired” for another language, English-language learning can be slow and laboured. Through Fast ForWord sound training exercises, the students’ brains become “wired” to hear and quickly process the phonemes of English.
Provide the student with 1000s of opportunities to practice grammar, vocabulary, and listening skills using fun exercises that respond to each student.
Listen to and support the student as they speak and read aloud. Advanced speech recognition technology allows the student to be supported by the computer when reading aloud with the Reading Assistant program.
New! Teacher lessons are now included
English language development teacher lessons are now included with all school packages (and for teachers of home users who wish to use them).
