Would you like to relax your students’ tired eyes? Is it sounds good to convert any written text such as Microsoft Word into spoken words? What about running a PowerPoint presentation and have a narration of the text on your slides?
Wordament® is a unique and highly addictive word game: a two-minute long word tournament where you compete in real-time, on the same board, against everyone else currently playing. Each board is unique and alternating rounds offer challenges such as two- and three-letter digram tiles and theme* puzzles. You can choose to go for the bonus points, try to find the most words possible or earn scoring bonuses by finding longer words.

The best way to learn a foreign language is through immersion, but immersion is nearly impossible to replicate in the traditional educational environment. In my opinion, the iPad is the most promising tool available to date to foreign language educators to help recreate the immersion environment for students outside of the classroom.
► Dual Speed Audio Don’t you sometimes wish native English speakers would JUST SLOW DOWN? We do, so we’ve enabled Learn English by Radio to play audio at two different tempos: Original Speed, as it’s meant to be heard, and Slow Speed, which is much easier to understand. Slow Speed will help you develop an ear for spoken English. Once you develop that ear, you can listen to the episode at Original Speed.
► Transcript Displayed along with Audio with Replay Options Asking a native English speaker to backtrack and repeat words that you missed can be a major pain in the you-know-what. But with Learn English by Radio, it’s no problem. If you miss something, simply pause the audio, scroll back through the transcript and replay it. Then fast-forward the transcript to your original position.
► Definitions, Idioms, Slang and Grammar Notes Many ESL students have trouble understanding idioms, slang, complex vocabulary, and strange pronunciations. These issues are compounded by imperfect grammar, which some LAPD officers (and most native English speakers) regrettably suffer from. Learn English by Radio helps you master difficult words and phrases by highlighting and explaining them. Simply click on a highlighted word and the audio will pause while a definition or explanatory note appears on your screen. Close the link and the audio resumes.
