In a school study in the UK, students using Sounds English Phonics gained more than 1 year in reading age over a 30-day test period.

“Sounds English Phonics is an excellent product which was complementary to our existing teaching programme. I would recommend the app as part of a teacher’s armoury and believe it is a very useful addition for all children learning to read, that can be used either at school or in the home. ” Robert Eves, Grade 3 Teacher, St John’s Green School, Essex

My nephew's progress at school was not at the level his parents expected. My sister had purchased Zaprendo, that's how I was first introduced. Watching Greg tonight I was really fascinated. He was truly using a phonetic approach with the words. I need to say again, more than ever that I am blown away by your approach." Susan Wells, Teacher and former Principal, North Carolina, USA

Parents are also impressed with the engagement of their children in the programme and the ability of the programme to build a strong educational foundation.

"Graphically it’s stunning. At 7 years old my daughter was struggling with her phonics. This app has helped my daughter where other aids failed" Mark Folkard, UK

Educational App Store, UK
"This app has been extremely well produced. It is clear to see from both the app itself but also via the developer’s website as well as from the content within the app. Unlike some literacy and phonic apps that claim that they do make a difference this developer has spent time undertaking research in school settings to make sure their app not only meets the needs of schools and the users but that it does have some benefit. It is ‘small’ aspects like this from a developer that really gives confidence in an app when you are choosing between so many apps in such a saturated market especially when school budgets are tight and they are looking to maximise the resources that they do purchase."
