“Our app helps them to record and revise vocabulary they’ve learned in class at any time”
“We want language students to be exploring language all the time, not just in class,” Sophie Montagne, membership services and internal communications, explained.
“Our app helps them to record and revise vocabulary they’ve learned in class at any time – on the bus, during a lunch break or waiting in a queue.”
My Words can translate words into two foreign languages, with 15 different languages to choose from; it can also store photos of words students want to translate at a later date.
The company said it was designed to help students remember vocabulary they would normally “learn in class, scribble on a piece of paper and then never look at again”.
It is available through the IHExperience.com webpage and has been downloaded nearly 500 times since its launch last month. “It’s gone down a storm with all of our schools so far,” said Montagne.
International House World Organisation is a global network of more than 50 independently owned language schools worldwide, all of which meet the same high standards. The brand’s IH Dublin school was bought from shareholders for €1.6 million earlier this year by Independent News & Media PLC (INM).
