Learning English

The best way to learn a language to is to practise a little bit every day. Our app helps you do that with daily updates of amazing, fun and topical lessons, transcripts and quizzes. Watch your English grow!

Features that will help you learn

Watch or listen to each programme without using the text support. Then watch or listen again using the built-in transcripts and subtitles. Once you've practised your listening and reading skills, use the quizzes to test your understanding. The app will remember your scores so you can keep trying until you get the result you want.

When you're listening to an audio lesson, the programme will keep playing in the background even if the screen is turned off. So you can be on the bus, travelling by train, flying, walking, running or even swimming* and still have the perfect lesson in your ear.
* This feature requires a waterproof phone
