About

このアプリはフォニックスを中心にして、楽しい覚え方で英語の基礎を上達できるようになります。フォニックス(Phonics)は、英語圏の子どもたちに読み書きを教えるために開発された指導法。英語の「スペリング(つづり)」と「発音」の間にある法則を学ぶことで、英語の正しい読み方をかんたんにマスターすることができます。

We are a small language school located in Fukui, Japan. During our years in service we have had the privilege of teaching over hundreds of students within the area. We would like to reach students worldwide!

Over the years technology has changed the way we learn. For our students we hope to maintain a balance of the traditional way teach as well as integrate modern technology outside of the classroom as an additional English learning resource. To accomplish this we hope to create a learning app which students can access through the various consumer devices available now.

Currently we are revamping the way we teach our phonics course and what better way to accompany that but with a phonics-based app. We currently have our beta version of this app:

The prototype begins with a song introducing the letters for a particular unit (In this case, short vowels and B, C, D, G, T sounds). Then we introduce flashcards that utilize those syllables through a memory module. After students have competently learned all 24 new words they can continue onto the phonics game. Here, students can play a 4 in a row game with the computer.

The programming and graphics utilized in this app aren't very heavy. This can allow us to create a very inexpensive app. Budgeting for this app is expected to be under $3000USD. Most of this will be allocated to an American based programming company and American English voice actors. We aim to have 9 learning chapters prepared for release in April of 2018.

Risks and challenges

We have secured a programmer and a voice actor. The curriculum for the phonics program has been written and a working demo of the first unit has been prepared. All we have to do is expand on the existing code. The risk of a delayed release is possible but we hold high confidence that we can release the app by late April/early June.
