English Alphabet Rap
ENGLISH ALPHABET RAP (letter names for learners & teachers)

Catchy rap music and a fun way to quickly learn the names of the lowercase and capital (uppercase) letters of the English Alphabet! Use the Play, Pause and Stop buttons to practise naming the letters in time with the music or spoken soundtracks. The controls on the phone or tablet can be used to Mute or Reduce the volume while the user raps or says the letter names in time with the highlighted letters.




ENGLISH KEYWORDS 120 (word building for learners & teachers)
Many adults and children, both native speakers and those learning English as an additional language, have difficulty reading English because they do not fully understand the 44 sounds (phonemes) and 120 keyspellings (keygraphemes). This app uses 120 keywords (each with a memorable picture) to introduce and revise the sounds and keyspellings so that learners are more able to segment and blend unfamiliar English words before learning to read and spell them. It is invaluable for improving the pronunciation of familiar words too!




SING-TO-READ (for learners & teachers)
This app is a fun way for children and adults to learn about the 44 sounds and 120 key spelling choices of English – simply by singing and reading! There is a song, with a catchy tune, and high quality illustration for each of the sounds. The songs have wonderful imaginative titles such as “The moon fell out of the sky”, A great big gorilla” and “You don’t get pandas in Africa”. There is a wide range of musical styles and dance rhythms to enjoy, including African Round, blues, boogie, Charleston, disco, Hawaiian, hip hop, Irish Dance, jazz, jive, pasodoble, ragtime, reggae, twist and waltz. The text is highlighted in ORANGE, in time with the high quality vocal or instrumental soundtracks so that users are able
to sing and read the words.

The English Phonics Test – it’s about TIME! Many children and adults, both native speakers and those learning English as an additional language, have difficulty reading English because they do not fully understand the 44 sounds and 120 keyspellings. This app uses 120 keywords (each with a memorable picture) to introduce, revise and test the user’s knowledge of the sounds and keyspellings. The seven modules include the interactive Picturechart (iPC), Levels 1-5 (the five structured teaching modules, all with TIMED practices) and the superb interactive Word Bank (iWB). The ultimate test (graded A-H) requires the user to spell all 120 keywords in the fastest possible time – where each keyspelling must be selected from 120 possibilities! The software equivalent, published by THRASS UK, is SOUND IT OUT.




ENGLISH PHONICS TEST - LEARNER USER GUIDE (user guide for teachers)
The aim of the Learner User Guide (LUG) is to provide a good introduction to the seven modules in the separate but associated English Phonics Test app. The screen captures and text in this 173-page guide give a good idea of how and where to start using the English Phonics Test app.
