Great teachers know their students better than any technology. Speak Agent amplifies your teaching superpowers by giving you the ability to tailor instruction to your students’ academic language needs.
Engage students in deep learning.
Most online vocabulary activities simply show a word and its definition or a picture. Isolated practice alone isn’t an effective way for students (especially ELLs!) to learn academic language. That’s why we also include games that use stories and audiovisual context to convey the meaning of academic concepts and to teach grammar and syntax. We integrate reading, writing, speaking, and listening into varied games and activities, while still enabling complete customization of the program to fit your scope and sequence. Speak Agent's interactive, game-based approach engages students in deep learning to apply new concepts in multiple contexts. Visit our research page for details.

Speak Agent saves you time creating digital lessons tailored to individual students or groups, with ELL supports. You decide which vocabulary, texts, and learning games are the best fit and Speak Agent does the rest! The program also includes opportunities for collaborative learning and creativity where students make sentences or stories together using your target academic concepts.
