[] Dublin, Ireland - The British Council estimates that "2 billion people globally require English language training". isengua is building mobile applications that will offer students an alternative to the physical classroom using the new mobile platforms to deliver learning outcomes. Over the past two years there has been a marked change in how web browsing is viewed and available research indicates a marked shift from desktop/laptop to mobile. By 2015 mobile browsing will be the predominant access form and mobile applications will form an important part of the e-learning community. Mobile learning is set to become the industry norm giving Students access to quality content at a fraction of the normal cost.

Productivity Apps are becoming more prevalent in the app store. To date the majority of language Apps have all been static without genuine interaction. The iEnglisch app offers students the opportunity to access learning content on high quality video with instruction from native English teachers. The App includes 20 video modules totalling 180 minutes of content and interactive lesson tests. Students are required to pass the test in each module before being allowed to continue to the next lesson. All the courses available on 'iEnglisch' follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels A1 - C2.

The iEnglisch App is now available in the iTunes store. It can be found in the education category and is free to download. The free App comes with a preview video, interactive level test and the introductory lesson 1. In-App purchasing allows students to download further lessons with prices ranging from Euro1.99 to Euro 3.99.
