Noyo, a Boston based educational software company, has created a learning platform for the iPad and tablet market that is changing the traditional flashcard model. Noyo Chinese iPad and Android app is a great learning tool that is being adopted by school districts around the country.
“Teaching Chinese vocabulary using flashcards is an age old technique, but doesn’t always equate to long term retention,” Mike Sullivan Co-founder at Noyo. “Noyo’s language learning platform has changed the traditional flashcard model by pairing vivid graphics and authentic audio. This multi-model approach facilitates recall, and makes learning new vocabulary fun!”
The Noyo interactive platform is designed to help users learn vocabulary by linking words to entertaining images, high-quality audio, and built-in assessment units. At the same time, engaging scenarios and comical characters transform vocabulary building from a tedious chore to laugh-out-loud fun.
The app features:
--Thousands of words and phrases, each reinforced by supporting audio, visual representation, and written translation
-- Chinese and pinyin spellings
--Nearly 200 custom-illustrated scenes, packed with friendly characters and amusing scenarios
--Audio by a professional voice artist who is a native speaker
--Built-in assessment questions at the end of each unit
--Built-in assessment; check your stats--including how words learned, the time spent learning, and assessment scores--and the ability email them to the user or a teacher!
--10 targeted units, featuring vocabulary related to: food, ordering at a restaurant, transportation, cities, vacation activities, home and family, sports, animals, school, seasons
