At BETT Middle East 2010 (21-22 November), Texthelp Systems will be launching new software to help students improve their English language skills. As the most widely used international language in the Middle East, a strong command of English is important for enhancing employment prospects. Read&Write ESLsoftware is a toolbar which can be used with most common computer applications such as Microsoft Word and Internet Explorer. It is designed to help students learning English as a Foreign Language and those who have completed their ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exams. Experts will be on Stand G45 to show teachers how to effectively use this technology in the classroom.
A typical assignment set by a teacher may require a student to write an essay on youth unemployment in England today followed by a presentation on the subject. The student would typically begin by searching online English newspapers. Read&Write ESL’s speech button reads any text aloud in a human sounding voice, allowing the student to check the pronunciation in preparation for the oral assignment, whilst sharpening their listening skills.
