English language learners improve English comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation & reading

Sonic learning step 1

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.

Sonic Learning step 2

Provide the student with 1000s of opportunities to practice grammar, vocabulary, and listening skills using fun exercises that respond to each student.

Sonic learning step 3

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.
