    Wall Street Journal covers Advanced French for iPad

    Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

    Innovative Language is back in the news! This time, it’s our French that is put to the test.

    A Wall Street Journal article, Brushing Up on Your Japanese on a Small Screen, reviews a number of mobile apps for language learning and includes our own FrenchPod101’s “Advanced French for iPad” App.

    Here’s an excerpt:

     

    “An app that included basic French grammar was Advanced French for iPad, described as an “audio e-book.” The course consists of 25 audio blogs, each less than two minutes long. They included blogs from a French narrator, who goes by just by [sic] the name Christophe, on his country’s health-care system, rappers, telethons and foods.

    The content is breezy and fun, though the brief, au courant English introductions from a young American woman in Paris can be silly. We liked the function that let us hear just one line at a time, allowing for pauses for speaking practice and to go over vocabulary lists and sample sentences.”

    There are over 690 Innovative Language Learning apps like “Advanced French for iPad,” and they span over 40 languages and cover every level from Beginner to Advanced. Each app is designed to bring practical, fun, and real-world style language lessons as well as their relevant vocabulary and grammar, to smartphones and tablets.

    We’re happy to have been included in this review and will continue improving our mobile apps to teach language in the fastest, easiest, and most fun way.

    iPhone Applications

    Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

    Hello Everyone!

     

    We have been listening attentively to all that you have said, and finally the applications’ updated are now just around the corner!

     

    These applications are made to help you cope with the many difficulties of learning a new language, and so we strive to make them cater to your needs. Though iTunes allows for reviews and such, discussion on the applications is very limited. As such we have decided to open the Blog as a platform from which all news about the applications can be made public-including the release dates of updates and their contents, and where we as a community can come together to discuss the applications indepth.

     

    Let us start a real and active dialogue so that we may mold the applications into all that the can be. We will be keeping you informed on all the developments with the applications as they happen, so be sure to keep everyone informed on your impressions of the applications (i.e. leave us feedback, we’re always open to improvements!).

     

    Looking forward to hearing from everyone!
