Language Exercises

 

Fast ForWord language exercises focus on the hard-to-process phonemes of the English language for both elementary and secondary learners.  The samples below for elementary learners are new! 

Each language exercise uses patented speech technology that slows and amplifies individual phonemes to strengthen learners' ability to process these sounds. As learners' processing skills become sharper, the acoustically modified sounds are sped up to sound more like regular spoken English.
