Pass your 'English as a second language' test the first time!

Zinkerz TOEFL Making It Easy To Study Hard
Review posted Wed 26 Aug '15

The Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) was first introduced in the mid 60's as a standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers wishing to enroll in US universities. It is accepted by many English-speaking academic and professional institutions and is one of the two major English-language tests in the world, the other being the IELTS. Its a tough test that involves speaking, listening, reading and writing and costs a fair amount of money to sit - so its important that you are proficient in all four elements in order to pass the exam. ...

You can have fun with maths and be good at it too

MathsMatch Build your Maths confidence...
Review posted Wed 25 Feb '15

According to New Yorker contributor and best selling author Malcolm Gladwell, Asian kids have a distinct advantage over the rest of the world when it comes to maths. Whereas some have purported the theory that there is an IQ differential along racial and ethnic lines, Gladwell claims that it has more to do with structure and methodology than anything else. His theory is based around the much simpler concept that Asian names for numbers are shorter than their English equivalent - meaning it is easier for them to remember more. Going down those lines, it's pretty easy to see that ... Read more

The new, free way of learning for teachers, students and parents

Review posted Thu 13 Mar '14

It was interesting to read recently that one of the first things that will change as a result of the debate involving Charter and Public Schools in New York will be the opening up of resource material to everyone for free. If all goes according to plan, resource and reference material will be available for everyone to see instead of being the reference library for those who could afford it. Knowing how most governing bodies enjoy their rhetoric and tend to drag their feet when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is, we'll have to wait and ... Read more

Eliminate grammatical mistakes with automatic and easy checking

Grammar Checker Academic HD grammar dictionary that will...
Review posted Thu 14 Nov '13

Let's get this straight from the start. I'm big on good grammar. Anything that can be done to improve the writing capabilities of our students has got to be a good thing. If you are a reader, you will know that there is a big difference between the quality of writing of people like Bill Bryson, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and John Grisham compared with lesser writing mortals like James Patterson and E.L. James. While we are not suggesting that a grammar checker will propel your prose to those heady heights, Grammar Checker Academic HD is an iOS education and ... Read more

Some students are naturals when studying and note taking while others have a few problems maintaining concentration when learning. It's a fact!

Move into the 21st Century with this next gen lesson planner for teachers of all kinds.

Common Core Lesson Planner Education App of the Year 2013
Review posted Mon 22 Apr '13

The image that immediately comes to mind when thinking of planning and preparing teaching lessons is of the kindly teacher, laboriously trudging through large amounts of paper and mapping out the direction of the upcoming lesson. Oh, hang on...that was a Dickens book i was reading. Well, its either that or you can update it to the 20th Century by imagining the same scenario with its modern day equivalent - Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. Now it's time to move on from those efficient but bad old days and move into the next generation of lesson planning. Common Core is ... Read more

Could this be the new Sudoku?

Quento! Goodbye Sudoku. Hello Quento!
Review posted Sat 12 Jan '13

If you have ever read any of Malcolm Gladwell's books you will appreciate the vagaries of the general public. For a start, you can ask yourself why a game like Sudoku took off in such a short amount of time. One minute the only thing that you would find, apart from Peanuts and Hagar The Horrible, on your newspaper's funnies' page was a couple of crosswords. Suddenly, there was a rather taxing little numbers game that sucked everyone in. Now there's at least one Sudoku puzzle in every newspaper. The only trouble is, Sudoku can be a little challenging for ... Read more

A fun and effective way of learning conversational Japanese

StudyChat Japanese Learning Japanese Made Fun
Review posted Tue 28 Aug '12

They say that if you are going to learn a language then the earlier you start the better. But why is that I wonder? Surely, the brain power of an adult with their learning capacity and drive is going to be able to pick up a language at least as quickly as a little kid. So maybe the learning pattern is not quite right. StudyChat Japanese was developed to incorporate an element of fun into language learning in the same way that kids are taught new words and phrases in another language.  It uses the simple and fun  idea of ...
