About the Apps

Comments

There are a plethora of great apps for working with children whose primary language is not English, but these are the five best for elementary school-aged children. Included here are five fun apps which help students work on vocabulary, phonics, conversation, and test-taking skills.

EF Vocabulary Game and Kids' Vocab - MindSnacks are two great apps which help introduce and reinforce new words through challenging games. These include spelling, word use, and reading games.

Starfall ABCs is a game for younger students that focuses in a simple manner on letter sounds and initial sounds of words.

Conversation English is a fun app for older students as it is a little more complicated to use. It includes audio and videos that demonstrate English conversations starting at a basic level (and working up to more advanced options). There are word banks, matching games, and multiple choice quizzes that help reinforce the new vocabulary and conversations in each level.

Finally, Animals Learn English - First Grade is a review of one of many apps created under the same title each being designated for a separate grade level. This app is a multiple choice quiz game that is set up with fun animal graphics, and a fish tank that you fill with critters as you complete the quizzes. This is a particularly good app to motivate stubborn learners!
