{Review} Language Empires

Here's an app that's great for older elementary students.  Say hello to Language Empires by Smarty Ears!

This app is excellent for targeting a variety of language skills such as:

answering why questions,

answering how questions,




answering which questions, 

figurative language, 

and sequencing.

Each "empire" includes 50 different questions, as well as 2-3 levels which means that this app is extremely versatile!

Getting started is easy.  Simply add a name and select a photo.

Then, you can adjust your settings.  One of my favorite features in this settings area is the ability to remove incorrect answers when a student chooses the wrong answer.

Then, you're ready to choose the area(s) to work on.  Just drag the player to the empire that fits the activity you'd like to work on.  Tap 'next' when you're ready to begin.

Here's a quick glimpse at all of the empires.  Reminds me of a video game - which may be quite appealing to many students!

Last but not least, you can view data for each student in every topic area.

*A new update to this app also includes homework.

What I love about this app:
- Typically, apps cover 1-2 concepts; at most 3.  This app includes 50 questions in 8 different content areas.
- I love that the app allows you the option of removing incorrect answers for a student if they provide a wrong answer.
- The app reminds me of a video game, which should definitely hold the attention of many students!

You can find this anything but ancient language app for $24.99 on iTunes!
