The Speak English Like an American Android app is a fun and effective way to learn conversational American English.
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Language Success Press, a publisher of accent reduction, business English and everyday English materials announces that its popular ESL app, Speak English Like an American, is now optimized for Kindle Fire and is available on Amazon. The new version also works on other Android based tablets as well as smartphones.
"The Speak English Like an American Android app is a fun and effective way to learn conversational American English," says Tanya Peterson, Marketing Director of Language Success Press. "It's also great for improving American English pronunciation."
In the app, learners will join an American family as they go about their day-to-day lives. Along the way, they'll master over 300 of today's most common English idioms and expressions.
While idioms can be tricky for non-native English speakers, author Amy Gillett explains that they are a key part of gaining fluency in English. “Idioms add color to the language. They make it come alive. They make English learners' speech sound more natural and less foreign.”
The app includes native speakers reading all the dialogues aloud. Users can record themselves reading the lines and play them back, comparing themselves to native speakers. "This is a handy tool for accent reduction," says Ms. Peterson.
Each lesson features an interactive quiz with immediate feedback and reward icons.
Five lessons are included free. Users can then get the other 20 lessons for $9.99. Versions of the Speak English Like an American app are also available for the iPad and iPhone.
The app is based on the bestselling ESL book, Speak English Like an American. Since its original release 10 years ago, Speak English Like an American has helped tens of thousands of English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) speakers master everyday English. The book and CD are popular for both self-study and for the classroom, in use at dozens of universities and language schools around the world. A sixth edition of the Speak English Like an American hard copy book and audio CD will be released in November.
Midwest Book Review calls the Speak English Like an American book & audio CD "a highly recommended self-teaching tool for those who are familiar with the English language, yet who seek to take their fluency to new heights by mastering common English idioms."
In addition to the new Speak English Like an American Android app, Language Success Press also offers a line of 7 ESL apps on iTunes for use on iPads and iPhones.
