Apps to practice English

So, there are hundreds of apps to practice English, from grammar exercises to audio and video. A simple Google search will lead you to all of them. However, we asked our stakeholders wich apps they preferred, and three stood out:

Most of our stakeholders also prefer the mobile version, this allows them ease of use, and to access the app while commuting. Make sure to download them from the app store for your mobile, it is easier and safer.

Being exposed to the English language as it is spoken is an important tool to expand and consolidate your language skills.

Word search and puzzles are also great tools and  studies have shown that they can help improve memory, focus, vocabulary, and overall mental acuity. Word search puzzles emphasize pattern recognition, a key cognitive tool. Pattern recognition is the brain’s ability to find order and create meaning from data around us. Studies have also found that word search is effective at helping to teach a second language. Even if you don’t want to learn another language, there’s always room to expand your vocabulary. Most English speaking adults have a 20 to 35 thousand word vocabulary, while there are over 1 million words in the English language.

Cheers!
