While stuck at home, if you are a teacher or professor, your primary concern is probably how to continue teaching. First, one of our publishers in England, EuroTalk, has offered their app uTalk, free for at least 60 days to help your students.  It’s already helped thousands of students and doesn’t need any tech skills or IT dept involvement! Available in 140 languages – for anyone who has a phone, tablet or computer!

The app
:
 Offers a choice of over 140 languages
 Improves speaking and listening skills
 Uses games-based learning with points scored for correct answers.
 Features 60 topics per language eg social phrases, prepositions
 Can be used on all mainstream smartphones, tablets or computers and syncs scores between devices
 Allows users to work online or offline once it’s downloaded
Benefits for students:

 Achievable goals

Normally a one-year subscription costs $5.00 per student, but we are offering the app FREE for 2 months – to get you through the virus crisis.
