VOA’s useful & helpful program.
I found VOA 5 years ago & it has been helping me a lot for my own learning English. I love all subjects its program. By reading & listening along, VOA helps me improving my grammar & accent, expanding my vocabularies & my knowledge. It’s not only helping me to learn English, it also helps me to learn American history, culture, economic, music, etc...My clients who American’s & I sometimes talk about American’s history & they said “Wow, you know American’s history better than us”
I love to learn most things, especially history, so American history in VOA is my favorite one.
I have been lived in the U.S 10 years, and I have to say, if I know about VOA sooner, my English is much better than now. Learning English on VOA program, for me it’s the best way to learn a new language.
I was a reporter in Vietnam, so I want to keep up my writing, even though I don’t think I am able to do this job again here. But as I said I am a learner, I love to learn. In fact, things always change, so I never stop learning.
My writing has not improved in English yet, but I’ll keep it up by reading & listening VOA, hopefully some days, it’ll be better.
Last thing, I want to say thank you very much to people who have created VOA.
I hope there will be a auto reapeat option to every sentence
very good app,but there is only auto repeat option to the whole article,I hope there will be a auto repeat option to every sentence. I use this app to pratice my english listening skill.
More features need to be added
The app itself is good but to make it outstanding the developer needs to add features such as pause and repeat so that after the reader reads a sentence there is 1 to 15 seconds break before the next sentence and also a feature that can repeat the same sentence for several times . All adjustable in the settings section.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
