Turn learning English into a game with Angry Birds

The Learn English with Angry Birds smartphone app

Following its success as a web service, "Learn English with Angry Birds" is now launching as a smartphone app for Apple and Android.

The app, a partnership between Rovio and papagei.com offers 45 interactive video courses, grammar exercises, a vocabulary coach, plus help with pronunciation. The videos also come with subtitles in 10 different languages to help even beginners get to grips as quickly as possible.

"The interactive Angry Birds videos are entertaining, the language used is not too complicated and the episodes have the perfect length to complete short practice sequences after school," said Dr. Michaela Meier, CEO of papagei.com.

And, because at first glance it looks like a game, no one will know that you're actually doing your homework.

"We are delighted to be able to help support the aspirations of young language learners," said Alex Lambeek, Rovio's Chief Commercial Officer.
