"We center everything we do around the needs of our students," says Bill
, President of EF Englishtown. "When we saw that our students were
using their mobile phones to look up words even more frequently than to
browse the web, we realized we had an opportunity to put English learning
literally into the hands of our students."

From the company that brought the world 24-hour access to live English
teachers, the EF Mobile English app brings the magic of the iPhone to
Englishtown's learning platform. EF's new English learning app is also
available on the iPad and iPod Touch. Beyond essential features such as
dictionaries and translation tools, the EF app gives students access to 5,000
flashcards, English pronunciation practice tools, listening tests, and other
study materials. Most importantly, the app responds to student progress,
tailoring each session to the student's needs for optimal learning efficiency
and speed.

"EF has always pushed innovation. We're excited to bring our platform to
the mobile space and continue to uphold our mission of making English
learning available anytime, anywhere," Fisher adds.
