How I Use It
I have a student who cannot read or write English. This app allowed me to keep this student engaged during our technology class while moving forward with the other students. I have the student use a tablet with headphones to progress through the lessons. I also allow the student to use a translator online until comfortable using the app without it.
My Take
This app allows the student to learn basic words and phrases without feeling left out or bored, while the other students work on their activity.
