Turns out your teachers were right: improving reading, writing, speaking and maths skills can be fun. All you need is Elevate’s personalised brain-training games.
A quick assessment helps Elevate establish your aptitudes and customise your training programme – then you’re through to the games.
In the Brevity writing challenge, you’ll condense sentences by exploding the extra word. Do you really need that “totally”?
Or try your hand at Equivalence: a maths game in which you tap tiles to match equal proportions (20%, 1/5 and $0.50 of $2.50, for example). Race the countdown clock to solve as many puzzles in the time allowed and see how high you can score.
If you don’t fare so well and get answers wrong, you can tap to learn more, and Elevate will explain methods – such as how to simplify fractions.
Each day brings a session of five activities and there are numerous games to play, from averages to punctuation.
There’s even a game on pronunciation in which you will hear words being said with the emphasis on the wrong syllables and are asked to select whether this is the correct way to say them.
The games all have intended benefits. Extraction, for example, should help you learn techniques for skim-reading.
Completing a session takes just a few minutes and earns you points, which increase as you progress from novice to master.
The games all declare their intended benefits, both personal and practical: Averages, for example, aids in understanding variable costs while also refining your ability to interpret data in the news.
Completing a daily session takes just a few minutes and earns you points for your EPQ (Elevate Proficiency Quotient), which is how you track your progress from Novice to Master. Complete five sessions to unlock the study section, where tutorials break down specific skills you might not even have known existed. One module is designed to train you to increase your eye-muscle flexibility for faster skimming.
