A smart start to the new semester
Get through it with flying colours.
New classroom, new classmates, new uniform. There are plenty of things to prepare for when the new semester rolls around. School might have only just started, but it’s never too early to think about achieving good grades when it comes to the finals. These apps will support your child’s learning journey (or yours, if you’re a student yourself).
English for non-native speakers
Learning a new language is one way to expand your child’s horizons; consider starting with English, which is spoken widely around the world. From remembering vocabulary to understanding context in an excerpt to practising pronunciation – these apps can assist in all aspects of language learning. Try having an English-only day or week at home and get the whole family more comfortable with conversing in the language.
For their dream university
Given how tough the competition can get, it’s no wonder parents feel trepidation when sending kids to take an exam for a university admission. To properly prepare, ensure they rehearse past years’ exams. These apps collect tests from previous years, categorise them and make them easily digestible so students feel ready for the real exam date.
A future pianist, guitarist or conductor should be able to understand notes, pitches and keys, both visually and audibly. Use Earforge to test, train and improve listening skills for notes and chords. Kids will love exploring the gamified levels and it won’t feel like studying.
Staying active all year round
Sedentary lifestyles, snacks and sweet treats can undermine your child’s fitness, so it’s often up to parents, with the help of apps, to encourage active play that includes push-ups, jumping jacks and running. Maintaining high health and fitness levels is especially important for those who are aiming to enter national service or cadet school. Add these apps to the curriculum to maintain both healthy bodies and healthy minds.
Productivity apps for all students
Finally, make sure to maximise the productivity potential of your iPhone and iPad (with Apple Pencil). These note-taking and sketching apps make it easy to do work anytime, anywhere – just make sure the devices are charged before that field trip.
