English for a Song

March 2016 - Today

Music is a wonderfully powerful thing. It triggers the deepest emotions. It reminds and inspires. It moves with the ups and downs of our daily lives. It is a gateway. For possibilities, discoveries and life-changing opportunities. At English for a Song we believe that there are no limits to learning. And so we provide a musical learning companion, always-on and always accessible, for learners and teachers alike. We take the highly emotional character of familiar and cherished music and use it to enrich and empower literacy opportunities, advance our audience’s reading skills - all through the simplicity of a mobile phone app. And we’re with you daily, weekly or whenever you choose to engage. We track with industry standards recognizing the importance of measured success. We provide the soundtrack to all that is possible for your future. Connected as you develop, committed as you grow and progress, always rooting for you and always believing that your path to improved literacy is equally about the journey as it is about the destination. http://Englishforasong.org
