Simplify the English language for ELL students:Talk with a Specialist
Make English More Accessible to ELL Students
Reading Horizons has helped ELL students with a variety of native languages improve their pronunciation, including Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Japanese, and Haitian-Creole.
Language translations are available in Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese—making the software accessible to ELLs who understand little or no English. Each language option is available at an additional cost.
Help ELL Students Build Vocabulary
English for Special Purposes Databases help ELL students reinforce phonetic skills and develop vocabulary specific to certain settings common to American culture: Travel, Hospitality, Business, Medicine, School, Culinary, Construction, and Law Enforcement.
Vocabulary language translations allow students to read the translation of each word in their native tongue above the English equivalent. Students can also record themselves practicing each term to compare their pronunciation to the narrator’s.
Help ELL Students Improve Pronunciation
The Pronunciation Proficiency Tool uses animated cutaways to show the proper tongue placement for pronouncing each sound of the English language. Students can also watch videos showing proper mouth movements for each sound. Students equipped with a microphone can record themselves practicing each sound and compare their pronunciation to the narrator’s.
Through the Pronunciation Tool students can also access the ABC Draw feature which shows them how to write each of the letters in the English alphabet.
