FlashSticks Language Learning App Now Available on iTunes and GooglePlay

Free-to-download FlashSticks app tracks progress and helps students and professionals learn “On-the-Go.”

FlashSticks has added the FlashAcademy mobile app to its language learning portfolio. Described as a “Tutor-in-a-Pocket,” this free-to-download app provides a wide range of support for students and professionals as they learn a foreign language.

After FlashSticks Post-it® Notes were on the market, the next step was to go mobile. “Because technology is so commonplace, digital learning experiences needed to be developed,” explained Veejay Lingiah, FlashSticks CEO.

Richard Allen, Founder and Director of FlashSticks, wanted to tap into the inherent power of digital devices. “As I struggled to learn Spanish, I remembered pointing at things and asking whoever was passing by, ‘¿Que es eso?’ Why not just take a picture and get an immediate answer? So, one important aspect of our app is the Object Translator.”

FlashAcademy App users can scan any random object and the app will not only recognise what it is, but will also translate it into any one of 40 languages.

Of particular note are the games available on the app which deliver content aimed at all levels of ability and were created in consultation with more than 100 modern language teachers and linguists. Each game targets a specific aspect of language learning: vocabulary, meanings and definitions, listening and pronunciation, spelling, gender of nouns, and context within sentences.

In a new educational video, FlashSticks explains the benefits of using its new app to complement a learner’s efforts. Those interested in learning more about the FlashAcademy App can watch the following video:

Used in conjunction with the FlashSticks Post-it® Notes, both app and sticky notes complement each other to enhance language learning, retention, and application.
