Business English App by Business English Pod

Get Business English App by Business English Pod on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
Our Team's insight:

This app is a good way to practice listening skills for students who are focused on learning Business English.  The most useful of the lessons are the videos.  To easily access these, one should click on "topics" at the bottom of the home screen and then scroll down to "videos".

 

Be aware that once one has finished watching or listening to a lesson, it can be challenging to hit the "back" button because it is mostly hidden under the status/time bar on an iPad.  One should also be aware that some of the podcasts and videos require you to pay 99 cents to gain access to a transcript.

Oxford Picture Dictionary, Second Edition, Unit 1

Our Team's insight:

A great app for teaching vocabulary.  It's designed for teenagers and adults, but it could even work for 1st graders.  It is especially good for Spanish-speakers because Spanish translation is built into the app.

 

The free app only includes Unit 1, but that is still a large number of words.  More units are available for a small fee.

HMH Readers

Get HMH Readers on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
Our Team's insight:

This free app grants access to a large number of e-books designed for elementary school students.  There is a read-aloud function that can assist both emergent readers and English language learners.  The selection of e-books is split equally between fiction and informational text.  In addition, many of the texts provide K-5 teachers an opportunity to teach to both Common Core and Next Generation Science standards.  Finally, it should be noted that this app would be ideal for teachers who have established iPad-based learning centers in their classrooms.
