Burbank,CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Virtual Speech Center, Inc., a leading provider of mobile applications for speech therapy, announced today the release of Verbs News, an iPad application for teaching English verbs and their tenses, available for download on Apple’s iTunes App Store.
Verbs News provides speech therapists, teachers, parents, and students with a creative way of practicing over 190 English verbs in four tenses, utilizing not only flashcards but also video and audio capabilities, professional animations, and voiceovers. Children have fun learning verbs in a newsroom with an animated character, a TV anchor who explains English tenses with animated clips. After watching the tutorial for each tense, children may begin practicing verbs with flashcards. For each correct response, the child is awarded with an anchor microphone, and when the session is over, the child can video record him- or herself and create his or her own news channel to watch in a simulation of a professional newsroom. This flexible speech therapy app also offers features that allow reporting, data recording, and progress tracking.
“Verbs News makes learning verbs and English tenses easier as it actually visually explains the concept behind each tense, which is very important for children to learn before they begin to practice the structure of each tense. It is not enough for students to memorize the syntax formula, e. g. ‘I will walk to school tomorrow.’ Children need to understand when to use this formula before they master the sentence structure itself,” said Beata Klarowska, MS CCC-SLP, co-founder of Virtual Speech Center.
“We’re excited to provide Apple iPad users with unique applications for speech therapy to make speech therapy exciting and imaginative,” Beata Klarowska added.
