Phrases Used by Native English-Speakers

       iOS iPhone

*This is an English educational app designed for native Japanese speakers learning English.

■Overview
“Phrases Used by Native English-Speakers” is the second title from the “Learning Practical English Conversation By Real Situation Dialogue” series. It is an English educational software that contains a lexicon of phrases that English native speakers use.

Genuine English language communicative aptitude cannot be derived from an isolated emphasis on speaking and listening alone. From this series-wide concept, every phrase is dialogically structured. As appeared in the first title of the series, Karen will be your instructor to practice English conversation.

The explicit significance is the phrase selection method using “functional syllabus”. The colloquial expressions are classified into three main categories and 50 subcategories, such as “request” and “suggestion”, in terms of language function. This app is designed to evenly enhance your speech movement skills by featuring various categories.

Unlike the legacy method of selecting phrases according to appropriate English grammar or situations, the “functional syllabus” has practicality and high versatility in various conversational scenes.

* The functional syllabus design, phrase selection, and supervision are presented by NHK Educational Corporation.
