About this app

Welcome to the Amrita Learning Reading App, especially designed for Adults. The Amrita app is a finalist in the Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE Competition.

Lessons start with learning letter sounds and continue to multi-page stories and articles, with vocabulary support in English and Spanish.


The Amrita app features:

- Complete instruction of the alphabet sounds and of word-building skill with short, engaging videos.

- Reading curriculum that features a series of stories interwoven with factual Life Skills passages.

- Learning games, activities and music within reading passages.

- Reading Library with fun and interesting stories and articles with 2 special sections on self-empowerment articles and Read-with-your-child stories.

The content is structured into two locales: ESL (English as a Second Language) and NS (Native Speaker). Upon entering the program, the learner is assigned to one of the locales depending on their native language. Within each locale, small learning units are sequenced that build on previously learned skills. Specific skills to decode words, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension are emphasized. The materials in the two locales are designed very differently, but both stress the use of engaging material to reduce the high dropout rate that has plagued adult learning programs.

Looks like it has great potential but it requires downloading lessons, which takes space. And, I have yet to be able to download lesson on a Note 8. Look forward to fixes.

App freezes on every platform! I tried it on my Samsung phone, my husband's and my son's. I out it on three tablets, app freezes on all. Funny how it's free for a limited time. I bet it starts working after the "limited time" is over.

It's a shame I couldn't make it work in my cellphone. The screen never responded to my commands to click and start using it. It seems to be a good app. I downloaded two times, however without success. Maybe later I will download it again to check if it works.
