"One of the top benefits of the Listenwise platform is the access it provides my students to academic language...Students need to hear spoken academic English, and they need to hear a lot of it. They need to hear it from multiple voices and about a wide range of topics. My students, who are primarily Spanish speakers, have great social language skills, but do not have the vocabulary, background knowledge, or exposure to academic English that their peers have."

"I absolutely LOVE Listenwise! Beyond it's obvious benefits to listening comprehension, it mirrors a portion of our state standardized test. Our students begin the year with an average score of 30-40% on each Listenwise quiz and end the year with an average of 70-80% plus. I appreciate that I am able to use it as a long-term helper for my students to grow over time. It takes that much sustained practive (about once a week) to grow their listening stamina. My students enjoy it as well."

"Listening is a critical skill that is many times underdeveloped. Second grade is the right time to get students started with that discipline and broadening their horizons. Thank you for the slower speech feature which makes it accessible to younger students and English Language Learners."
Elementary Educator, Brightwood Elementary School, Monterey Park, CA

We were looking specifically to support our English learners first and foremost, but then through our implementation, we found out how useful it was to all of our students, EL or not....[Teachers] really like Listenwise because it gives them a different representation than just text format to give students exposure or new perspectives to different content topics....and students engagement and enthusiasm has been very obvious during classroom observations.
