This is an interesting app for both iPhone and Android. You can practice dialogues with a virtual character. There is some free content, but the app runs on subscriptions (£2.99 a month). Worth giving a try though to see how it works for you.

Vinicius Silva's comment, August 23, 2013 1:25 PM
I've used some of its free contents with my elementary students at college and it worked quite well. They loved the interaction with the characters and the repetition practice was very useful as well. Worth a try!

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Smart Phones and  Language Learning | Scoop.it

"Just a little reminder. BYOD in education refers to students bringing their own technology devices ( smartphones, tablets, and laptops. ) to school for educational uses. This was initially started by college students, but it soon spread to K-12 education. Schools that used to depend on government funds to provide technology that students would need for the school day , are now turning that responsibility to the parents by asking them to purchase the technology devices needed for schools, which, fortunately enough, most students actually own. This would cut down on schools' huge yearly technology expenditure.


Check out the graphics below to learn more on BYOD."
