uSpeak – An iPad App to Help Students Learn Spanish
uSpeak HD is a free iPad app designed to help beginners learn Spanish. The app matches you with word lists and learning activities based on your current level of knowledge of Spanish. The first time that you open the app you take an assessment to determine your current proficiency in Spanish. Based on those assessments uSpeak will determine which activities you should try first. Once you’ve registered on uSpeak it will keep track of your progress for you.
uSpeak’s word lists are organized in webs of related words. Click on any web to reveal the words. Then click on a word to reveal a web of in-context uses of that word, images associated with that word, and synonyms and antonyms for your chosen word. uSpeak’s learning games include matching words to images, matching translations, and word association games.
uSpeak HD is free. The app is appropriate for middle school and high school students who are trying to acquire a Spanish vocabulary.
