Ratings and Reviews
Good for practicing phonics. The first 40 or so sounds kids learn (i.e. A-Z, then sh, ch etc) are fully accessible. It actually has a LOT of different phonemes to practice,(i.e. more than I even realised existed) but they need to be unlocked… You have to unlock the other sounds.
Great for EFL ! Especially if you have the card games !
A nice, colourful app practiceing letter sounds !
