  • All in all, a great app!

    This has to be one of the best English listening apps out there! It furnishes the news broadcast audio files and their scripts. The app automatically highlights the line when it is being said, which is considerably important for beginners to avoid falling behind while listening. Most of the news pieces are from BBC- users can not only practice their listening skill, but gain more knowledge on current affairs and world news. The whole app is easy to use and almost needs no further instructions. All in all, a great app! Articles’ level of difficulty varies- beginners may have to watch out on that. Loads of advanced vocabulary is included so it might not be a good idea to check them all one by one on your own. Treat the app as a listening practice platform alone, and you will find it excellent.
