Newly released educational app – Super Duper Idioms helps kids (and adults) understand 500 common English idioms. Try the first 50 for FREE. You may purchase additional packs of 50 for $2.99 per pack. The app is cutely illustrated and features 4 fun games: multiple choice, super-duper secret decoder, fill in the blank, and search & circle. The questions are written but there is also audio support for students who have difficulty reading. The level of difficulty can be adjusted by choosing to have 2, 3, or 4 choice answers. The app can be set to read the correct answer after incorrect and/or correct response which is helpful to students who are learning the meanings. An unlimited number of players are permitted – making this app perfect for use in the classroom. And the best part…. it keeps track of data so teachers and parents can see student progress over time. The app uses graphs which can be emailed, printed, and/or shared – awesome! This app would be great for kids as well as adult ESL students who are learning English idioms – nicely done!
