The Speak English Like an American Android app is a fun and inspiring way to learn conversational English.
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) July 30, 2013
Language Success Press, a publisher of accent reduction, business English and everyday English materials announces release of a new Android app, Speak English Like an American. The new ESL app is available on Google Play. It is compatible with both Android-based tablets and smartphones.
"The Speak English Like an American Android app is a fun and inspiring way to learn conversational English," says Tanya Peterson, Marketing Director of Language Success Press.
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. "The record and playback features helps learners remember the idioms and is also a handy way to practice American pronunciation," says Ms. Peterson.
Each lesson features an interactive quiz with immediate feedback and reward icons.
Five lessons are included free, with the remaining 20 lessons available 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 fifth edition of the Speak English Like an American hard copy book and audio CD was released in January.
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.
