ABOUT US “Learn English with apps”: the purpose of this project was to make students test and write about apps that can help them improve their English language skills. The project aimed at taking advantage of a powerful and engaging learning tool – the students’ smartphone. Considering the huge amount of apps everywhere, the project wanted to make students test some of them (chosen by the teachers) for some time and see if they were effective or not. The final products of this project are 2 digital magazines, logos and some posters. Twinspace and Google Docs were used by students and teachers, allowing everyone to work in the same shared files. The Teams: 

Poland (Zespół Szkół Zawodowych im. św. Barbary w Bogatyni)

Portugal (EBI São Domingos, Covilhã)

Portugal (Mira de Aire Secondary School, Mira de Aire)

Turkey (Darıca Anadolu Lisesi)

We hope you enjoy our first magazine!

STUDENTS’ RATINGS


LEONOR FERREIRA, PORTUGAL (MIRA DE AIRE) POSITIVE ASPECTS I think that the app is great! It is a very good way to learn English, because it has grammar questions so we learn very quickly. The method is efficient, and because of that I’ll keep using it. There is a great variety of grammar exercises, such as prepositions, passive voice, modal verbs, past tenses, present tenses, pronouns, adverbs, relative clauses. It is easy to play and the directions are very simple to follow, which is awesome. This app is excellent for those who want to increase their grammar knowledge. It has two levels of difficulty: intermediate and Upper-intermediate and it loads quickly. It doesn’t have any advertising.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS It doesn’t have any appealing graphics or images, just text, so it can be a little boring. It is repetitive, because the different tests have the same structure.

BEATRIZ SANTOS, PORTUGAL (MIRA DE AIRE) POSITIVE ASPECTS The app has many levels and exercises, including tests. It shows what we did wrong at the end, saying and explaining what our mistakes were. It’s very fast, because it doesn’t have an introduction. It doesn't have any bugs, and it doesn't crash. It has several levels of difficulty. It doesn’t have any advertising.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS I really didn’t like the app. It doesn’t have any sounds, images, it’s not appealing, it always has the same colors and methods of organizing stuff. I think the instructions are not good at all, because it only shows a few words and that’s kind of unfortunate. The words and exercises are a bit difficult to people who don’t understand that much of English. It’s only good for people who already own some skills. The tests are too long and we get bored in the middle of it, so we close it and leave the exercise in the middle. The exercises are always in the same order, so it’s predictable. The method isn’t very motivating. I won’t keep using it.

STUDENTS’ RATINGS


MÓNICA MARTINS RODRIGUES, PORTUGAL (MIRA DE AIRE) POSITIVE ASPECTS I enjoyed this application because I learnt new words and their meanings so it helped me with vocabulary. This application works well and I want to continue using it to learn more vocabulary that helps me to learn better English. In each category it gives us a test with multiple choice questions to say the vocabulary of every word and that suits the image. The images are very visible and understandable and the sound is well produced. The directions are easy to follow and the degree of difficulty is low, this application has only got vocabulary and develops memory and listening skills. This application teaches vocabulary through games where we hear the words in each round. The application is organized into different categories, and each category contains the word with its definition, image, and an example how to spell phonetically.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS The app is not very motivating because the games are repetitive so it can be a little boring. It is easy to use and but it has some annoying ads especially when you are playing. The app sometimes crashes.

STUDENTS’ RATINGS


ADRIANA ALBINO, PORTUGAL (MIRA DE AIRE)

POSITIVE ASPECTS This app is very educative. It has a lot of exercises, to practise a huge number of themes. My app teaches English in general. The directions are not that clear. It doesn’t have an introduction, so it’s very fast to load. It teaches grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. It also has an audio course, but it doesn’t work very well, because it has not an audio part, it just has exercises about a supposed listening text.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS My app is also very boring. It doesn’t have any sound and is very disorganized. In my opinion the themes are very confusing and the exercises are all about the same things. It’s too repetitive. It has the same order of the answers when we do it 2 times. We just can view the score when we close and open the app. In the beginning we do the exercises with motivation, but then it becomes too boring. It’s not difficult, but it’s not easy either.

STUDENTS’ RATINGS


BEATRIZ CARVALHO, PORTUGAL (MIRA DE AIRE) POSITIVE ASPECTS “The Spelling Games” is an easy way to learn some vocabulary and to practise our listening, writing and spelling skills and our brain. The only things that the app has of good are having great graphics, good sounds, the words are divided into the letters of the alphabet according to the first letter of the words, it loads quickly and doesn’t have advertising neither bugs. Maybe I will continue to use it.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS The app doesn´t have different levels but some of the words are harder to understand. It’s very repetitive because it can appear the same word like five times in a row. Because my vocabulary isn’t very developed the game eventually becomes boring because I do not know the words. The consequence of that is that I lose motivation after a short time. The directions are not very clear nor simple.

STUDENTS’ RATINGS


CAROLINA CONCEIÇÃO, PORTUGAL (MIRA DE AIRE) POSITIVE ASPECTS The App is very funny because the work method is funny, too. The method is very motivating because there are three levels of different difficulties: slow, fast and crazy! The App has three “exercises” or “levels” to play, it doesn´t have a lot of exercises. The graphics are good and the sound is a little annoying. The game is very clear and simple to play, The App load quickly and it´s very easy to play. The App it´s very good to teach vocabulary, because there are a lot of words! We develop writing and the App teaches a lot of words.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS The App is a little boring because crashes sometimes, is repetitive because it is always the same and is limited because there are only three types of levels. I lose my motivation after a short time because it´s always the same. The App isn't difficult to use but it crashes sometimes, the sound is annoying and the App has advertising.

POSITIVE ASPECTS The app doesn’t crash and loads quickly. I will not keep using it. We can learn some new words, it is very good to practice our listening skills and it is very good to play when we don’t have anything else to do (maybe just on those moments).

NEGATIVE ASPECTS I didn’t like my app, it was too repetitive, confusing and simple. My app was boring and I didn’t (and I still don’t) understand what I’m supposed to do with it. Actually, I didn’t play a lot with it because it was a little boring. It has lots of advertising, very annoying advertising.
