Rainbow Sentences

I had readers asking about Rainbow Sentences App.  I contacted Mobile Education Tools, who developed the app, and received a copy of the app.  After reviewing the app, I was really impressed by the design – no matter it is the picture, or the choices of the sentences, or the lesson style. Rainbow Sentences’ target users are kids who have difficulties following traditional teaching methods, and those (kids or adults) who are learning English as a second language.  It is… Read More
