App Description

Half price for a limited time!!!

Let our amazing aliens help you learn your alphabet! Learn and practise the letters and sounds of the English alphabet as never before, thanks to our funny little aliens in our ‘big-screen’ iPad app. Plus, test yourself, your friends or your family with our set of addictive alphabet countdown games. With 4 great resources in one (each with US and GB accents options), this is a resource that has something for everyone.

Letter recognition and learning phonics (the sounds that letters make) help provide the building blocks for your child’s reading and writing development. So, let our ABC Aliens give your child a head-start on their road to literacy success.

This beautifully-illustrated/animated and professionally-recorded (with US & GB accents) resource helps children master the English alphabet as well as the sounds each letter makes. Capital and lower case letters modes, as well as a choice of voices (alien or child) allow for even more flexibility in your child’s learning and development. Add to this the Record & Play Your Voice functions and you have an app that is hard to beat when it comes to taking the first steps towards successful reading and writing. To consolidate what your child has learnt, why not take the ABC or ZYX Countdown challenges?

Already loved by children, both native and non-native speakers of English, from ages 3 to 10, (as well as their parents and teachers!) ABC Aliens is a stimulating way to join in and engage with your child’s learning while boosting their English level through educational play.

Developed by online & mobile education specialists, Cambridge English Online Ltd, with 10 years’ experience creating cutting-edge online and mobile resources, ABC Aliens has been tested and reviewed by teachers and parents and aims to support National Curriculum guidelines on teaching and learning letters and sounds.
