For language school students who are learning English with Kaplan, they have an exciting announcement. English Train, the free app that makes learning English fun and easy is now available. With this app gamers are encouraged to get their ticket for the English Train and improve their language skills in a fast-paced race against time by quickly matching words to the corresponding image before they reach the next station.
Players can increase their vocabulary in three fun categories: animals, technology and food and drink. They must memorize each new English word by combining the image with an audio description. At each train station, players must click on a passenger and match what they say with the correct image found on the train seat. They also get the chance to revise their move by viewing corrections after each round.
Players also have the option to compare scores with other players from around the world by uploading results onto Facebook and the Global Leaderboard. Players who think their brain is faster than the English Train can share their success with friends and family.
This app is a great way to help children understand how to learn English and is also the perfect study tool for second language students of all ages who want to learn how to speak English with a greater vocabulary.
The best news is that the English Train app is available for FREE exclusively through the App Store, and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. There is even a version for the android. I think you should get yours now!

Do you want your children to learn how to speak English? Here is some exciting news for children aged 3 and above. Kaplan International Colleges, a market leading provider of English courses, has joined forces with Picaro to develop a new English learning app available on the iPad and iPhone. It’s called ‘Picaro Play,’ and is a free interactive storybook app that features spelling and word activities that can help children become familiar with many common English words.
Children can learn about weather, clothing and colors as they follow the rhyming story of two characters, Kim and Peter Picaroon, who go out to play in the rain. This interactive app gives children the opportunity to get involved in spelling and word games, where they must drag and drop the letters of the Picaroons’ names, and splash in puddles as they spell out new words.
‘Picaro Play’ is ideal for both for children learning English as a second language as well as young children beginning to learn to read and spell as the app helps them to recognize new words and letters. According to a spokesperson at Picaro, their aim was to create something that was fun, educational, and accessible to everyone. Picaro helps young children (ages 4~9) learn English and also prepare for Cambridge ESOL Young Learners Examinations (YLE).
I think kids would love to spend time with ‘Picaro Play.’ Why not check it out at the iTunes store today!
