Learn English Reading JFK – Android App Review



Android AppDictions App Review

If you have just a basic understanding of the english language, yet wish to learn enough to read text which is of interest to you then this app is going to be very useful indeed. It combines audiobooks and ebooks to create a really unique learning style.

While you listen to the audiobook, the app also marks each word as it is being spoken so you can keep track. You can tap on a word to get an instant translation (which can be really handy seeing as the English language has so many different words for the same thing).

Provided, also, is the amazing speech from John F. Kennedy in 1960, so if you want to, you can really learn some famous quotes!

In the app, you can listen to audiobooks and read the text on your screen at the same time. The text is marked-up in the pace of reading in order to keep track of the position in the text, just like karaoke. The audio-visual experience relates the spoken word to the written word and enhances the learning experience.
