Video Reviews of ESL Apps

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am now posting most of my ideas regarding mobile learning over on my Mobile ESL page at Google+. However, I did say that I would update this blog with anything I felt was worth cross-posting. Over the last few weeks I've started to do video reviews of various ESL apps and I've been adding them to my page, but I thought I could also add them here.

Review of Sounds: the Pronunciation App for Android/iOS

Review of three Mingoville Apps for Android

Review of IELTS Word Power for Android

I've also been compiling a list of the Best free ESL Apps available in a Google Doc/Presentation. If anyone would like to contribute to it, just let me know and I'll add you as an editor. 


  1. Nice information. Thanks.

  2. Hi David,

    I thought you and your readers would be interested in my new app 'Lex Word Game', for learning vocabulary from lists imported from Quizlet. You can play online at or with the mobile app on iTunes. Try it out and see what you think!



  3. Hi David, You and your readers should check out my series of American English pronunciation iPhone apps.

    Students can practice aural discrimination of minimal pair without a live teacher saying the words to them and telling them right or wrong. The app gives instant feedback. And there are separate apps for learners of different language backgrounds since they all need different minimal pair combinations.

    Check out my video at:

  4. Thanks for this. We are noticing there is little for business English learners in the app store so can recommend a brand new iOS app 'Speak and Learn Business English' so learners can listen and speak business English and compare intonation and complete interactive quizzes. Uniquely, you can opt for 1-1 business English lessons by Skype which makes it one of the most complete App offerings. Find out more here:

  5. Second language is an important aspect for any person to improve job career significantly.
