Vocabulary and Grammar

Name: Vocabulary and Grammar

Developer: Tribal Nova

PlatformiOS | 

Price: $Free/in-app purchase

'Vocabulary and Grammar' focuses on these key language skills using vocabulary exercises, listening comprehension and sentence formation activities. In order to stop these types of lessons becoming dry, animated underwater animals that are beautifully rendered act as the main characters for the games. As an example, an octopus finds hidden objects, and the user needs to group these objects based on their nature or what they are used for. 

The first level is free, and then an in-app purchase is required.
