Numbers, in any language are important as they form part of our daily conversation. A language is incomplete without numbers. Therefore, it is important that one learns numbers as well as vowels and consonants of a language. It is therefore imperative to know what the role of numbers is in the structure of Gujarati grammar.
However ANK app has been designed to teach cardinal numbers. It helps the user learn, pronounce, recognize and write numbers. It is a relatively easy app to use and teaches the right way to write numbers.
ANK has three unique features, namely:
1. Interactive listening and pronunciation of numbers, alongside object graphics representing the number
2. Learning by auto writing
3. Learning by writing on the mobile screen itself
This screen has a visual image of the Gujarati numbers, the way it reads in English and one can listen to how the number will sound like. It also gives a picture of an object representing that particular number. E.g. the Gujarati digit ૪ will be written as ચાર, alongside its English counterpart 4. Alongside the digit there will be a pictorial representation of 4, maybe four balls so that the user can relate the number correctly by counting. An easy way to learn by sound and picture illustration.
There is an animated illustration of the number that will allow one to write the number by themselves.
This feature allows the user to write and erase the numbers by themselves.
