I have been using this app in my high school ELL class for over a year and it has been amazing. The students enjoy the challenging topics of conversation. The feedback is instantaneous and drives them to improve. The other features and activities that go with this app are ever expanding. The color vowel chart is an additional tool that helps them to target correct pronunciation and their fluency. The customer support is excellent and shows that their heart is in the right place.

Blue Canoe is far and away the best English pronunciation app I've found. I've been using it with adult learners for a couple years now, and would not want to teach pronunciation without it. The Color Vowel Chart is a great foundation for the app, as vowels are so important to intelligibility and the CVC makes it easy for students to get a handle on the system and makes for an easy way to refer to specific vowels orally in class. Blue Canoe makes learning and practicing vowels fun, and while keeping the focus on stressed vowels also helps students practice other aspects of pronunciation. Being able to have instant feedback is incredibly motivating for students, and with this app they actually enjoy practicing.
