New to BETT 2011: Vocab Express


New to BETT 2011, Vocab Express (stand SW85) will showcase its online modern foreign language (MFL) vocabulary learning application for KS3, KS4 and KS5 students. The highly popular resource engages students, keeps them actively learning and raises attainment levels.

To mark its first attendance at the show Vocab Express is offering a selection of onstand promotions for visitors including 15 per cent off any purchases made at the show. Visitors wanting to be inspired in their teaching of MFL should schedule to attend the free Vocab Express seminar at 10:45am on Friday 14 January in the Software Zone, National Hall gallery, at BETT.

Visitors to stand SW85 will have the opportunity to experience firsthand the innovative nature of the Vocab Express application. Educators can see how this resource provides an engaging environment in which students can build their vocabulary whilst their progress is monitored and tracked by the teachers. Regular on-line vocabulary tests can be easily set up with no preparation or marking overhead.

Developed in partnership with a number of leading MFL departments, Vocab Express boasts many key benefits including: minimising teacher work-load, motivating students to learn vocabulary independently and offering real-time monitoring of activity and progress on an individual student basis.

“Vocab Express is an excellent online and independent tool to aid student revision; helping them to learn important vocabulary whilst giving instant feedback and monitoring their progress at the same time. Students are motivated and engaged in their own learning whilst also enjoying the competitive „scoreboard‟ element that features in Vocab Express” explains Mrs Katie Lee, assistant headteacher, director of specialism, The Willink School, Reading.

Justin Sycamore, managing director, Vocab Express says: “Vocab Express is proving very popular in schools across the UK, and we hope to use BETT as a platform to demonstrate its charm to a wider audience. This is the first year that Vocab Express has exhibited at BETT and the team is looking forward to being part of the world‟s largest technology in education show.”
