Short Dialogues with Puppet Pals

Within the subject English (primary school), this app aims at creating dialogues and recording them allowing young pupils to practise pronunciation and intonation in a controlled environment under the teacher’s monitoring. It also allows them to use the language in a playful situation through the impersonation of fairytale characters.

Brief Description
