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.

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.”

Joy School English is a game-changer platform for early childhood education. Living in a developing rural community ...with very low literacy rates and a high number of school dropouts, I believe this is the solution. Joy School English can critically solidify a child's early education and set the scene for their primary school journey.
