"...my students are speaking while they are playing."

“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.”

"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

“…they really understand the values at such a young age.”

"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.
