"We’ve also tried a few other methods such as book learning and Rosetta Stone, both of which bombed. That’s why I jumped at the chance to try Duolingo. And believe me, it’s addictive." —FluentIn3Months.com

Used in a variety of subjects, most recently Science (helping plants grow well) the children had used an art app to draw and label a flowering plant, we then imported the pictures into WordArt, whereby you can use the key words you have learned to create a word collage of your picture, reinforcing these key words and facts.
