A new approach for EAL

FlashAcademy® EAL is a new platform for schools, supporting teachers to deliver learning for pupils that don’t have English as their first language. The platform can be used on smartphone, tablet and PC and all progress is monitored through a comprehensive teacher dashboard.

FlashAcademy® accelerates English language acquisition through curriculum mapped lessons, challenges and games which simultaneously teach and test pupils.
  • Pupils acquire both vocabulary and grammar skills
  • Encourages high pupil engagment with a live school leaderboard
  • Indepedent learning for all skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening.

Addressing Key Challenges

EAL co-ordinators, inclusion managers and SLT across the country have helped to shape the FlashAcademy® EAL platform:

Pupils speak different home and languages and often cannot read.
FlashAcademy® EAL teaches English from over 30 home languages . It contains audio, phonics and pictures to help children who can't read.
We need pupils with EAL to improve quickly.
Pupils can access the app in class and at home, so learning doesn't have to stop when school ends.
We need to track progress for OFSTED.
The teacher dashboard records all progress made by pupils. This can be used to create reports for SLT and OFSTED inspections.
Teachers are over-worked.
Less time is spent with individual children without feeling guilty as learning is self-directed. It includes hundreds of resources, so teachers don't have to design their own.
It's hard to engage pupils with EAL.
Interactive lessons, games & translation technology make learning fun and engaging.

Support independent learning

Pupils learn independently with curriculum aligned lessons, adapted to each pupil.

Improve engagement

Fun word games keep pupils engaged and encourage healthy competition across class and school.

Inspire curiosity

Pupils can use the object translator to teach themselves the words they want to learn.

Measure Progress

The teacher dashboards helps ensure pupils are progressing and makes reporting quick and easy.

Pronunciation Feedback

Our speech analyser provides instant feedback so pupils can practise their pronunciation without feel self-conscious.

Pupils love it. Having their own app makes them feel special and they can also help their parents learn English at home. I would certainly recommend it to other schools as an effective tool for teaching and learning.

We’re delighted to be using EAL FlashAcademy with our pupils. We have such a diverse set of native languages amongst our pupils and this is the first platform that we’ve ever come across that addresses this challenge.
