Featured App! English Learning for Children with Shine On, Megabyte iOS App

Every month we feature our favorite web tools and apps for English language learners and teachers. This month we are highlighting the free Shine On, Megabyte iOS app. Megabyte is a virtual pet featuring content from Oxford University Press. This app was made for young children, ages 2 to 6 years-old. This is one of the most engaging and creative ways for teaching young learners how to speak English. The child downloads the app for free then receives a free virtual puppy who follows the child’s voice commands. Other cool features, include:

  • Feed, care and play with Megabyte
  • Unique voice recognition technology to help children improve their pronunciation
  • More than 120 words to learn
  • Dozens of activities and mini games with fun animations
  • Reports on the child’s progress
  • Safe, ad-free environment
  • Some in app purchases

Each week we scour the internet to find great web tools and apps to share on our various social networks (@TESOL, @AmericanTESOL, and @ESLWebinars). Check out our past favorites here.
