Description of Read Along by Google: A fun reading app
Read Along is a free reading app for Android that helps children have fun while they learn to read.
Read Along has an in-app reading buddy that listens to your young learner read aloud, offers assistance when they struggle and rewards them with stars when they do well – guiding them along as they progress. It works best for children who already have some basic knowledge of the alphabet.
After the initial download, the app works securely offline.
Inspire a love of reading in young learners
• Fun game-like experience: Keep young minds engaged with hundreds of stories and word games available in nine languages, including English and Spanish. Build confidence reading out loud with instant rewards of stars and badges
