Gain conversational confidence while developing social and emotional learning with Joy School English.
Joy School English is a vibrant, digital program that uses cutting-edge speech recognition technology to teach English and character-building values to young children. Jam-packed with proven instructional strategies and research-based activities focused on oral language, Joy School English puts kids on the fast track to English fluency while incorporating social and emotional learning (SEL).
Speaking and listening are the building blocks of true, communicative language ability. Many programs teach kids to read, but Joy School English teaches them to read and speak English, with over 15,000 opportunities to use their voice! And the earlier they learn to speak, the more confidently they can communicate and connect.
Together with New York Times #1 bestselling authors Linda and Richard Eyre—experts in parenting and teaching children values—we have developed a powerful value-teaching curriculum that helps kids build strong character and succeed as productive and happy global citizens.
Joy School English uses cutting-edge speech recognition technology to analyze speech, allowing the program to adapt to each child. This personalized experience—enhanced by artificial intelligence—optimizes oral language instruction.
There is a fundamental relationship between oral language and literacy. Initially, reading and writing are dependent on oral language skills. Eventually, reading and writing extend oral language.
Strategic emphasis on oral language, paired with speech recognition technology, encourages kids to speak.
Native English speakers model conversational phrases and vocabulary words in relatable situations.
Fun and memorable songs reinforce the conversational phrases and vocabulary taught in lessons.
Interactive books include animations that aid in listening comprehension.
Printable lesson guides include step-by-step instructions for whole-group activities and projects.
Values-rich curriculum incorporates social and emotional learning that builds strong character.
Joy School English helps teach English and values in three important, interconnected ways. First, a collection of teacher tools allows for small group, whole class, and even remote instruction. Second, students can learn independently—at home or at school—with a mobile app filled with games, songs, and videos. Third, parents can stay involved with their student’s progress with reports and in-app tools that encourage parent-child interaction.
“The difference between Joy School English and other apps trying to teach English is that my students are speaking while they are playing. In the other apps they might be receiving information, but in Joy School I hear them talk a lot and sing, and I like to see how they’re trying to improve their pronunciation. I think that’s the most positive thing about it.”
—Sylvia, Principal, Mexico City
"The speech recognition feature is helping my students develop great pronunciation. They hear the correct pronunciation, then they are able to immediately practice and imitate it. "
—Kindergarten Teacher, Shanghai China
"With Joy School English, when the children learn values we see that they really comprehend what’s right and what’s wrong. It is such a surprise to see that they really understand the values at such a young age. Thank you Joy School English!"
— Teacher, Dahua Kindergarden, China.
