Spanish Verb Blitz for iOS: now Apple Schoolwork ready!

If you’ve used Geoglot’s Spanish Verb Blitz for iOS in school with your students, then we have some exciting news. The app  can now be used with Apple’s iPad software for teachers and students, Schoolwork. That means you can now assign verb quizzes and track student achievement and progress directly in the app!

Top marks for Schoolwork

Apple are pushing their Schoolwork app and ClassKit environment as the next big thing in education, and rightly so. It makes it incredibly easy to send work to students and track progress and marks. Anything that makes teachers’ lives easier is a plus in our book, being educators ourselves. So we couldn’t wait to jump on the Schoolwork Apple cart!

New quizzes section

But it gets even more exciting than that. As well as Schoolwork compatibility, we’ve added a whole new Quizzes section to the app that anyone can use.  It features graded pop quizzes with a focus on fundamental principle of Spanish grammar. These include:

  • Conjugation of key verbs ser/estar/tener/ir
  • Ser or estar?
  • Irregular preterites
  • Verb forms for narratives / storytelling (preterite first person singular)

The Spanish flag

Spanish Verb Blitz available for iOS!

Hot on the heels of its Android cousin, Spanish Verb Blitz for iOS is now available on the App Store! iPhone and iPad users can now learn, drill and consolidate over 300 Spanish verbs on their devices.

The verbs selected are amongst the most common words in Castilian Spanish. That makes the app a superb vocabulary expander for beginners, as well as an ideal grammar self-test tool.

Quizzify your Spanish

All the familiar Verb Blitz games are included:

  • Infinitive quiz (drill those meanings)
  • Conjugation quiz (get those endings under your belt)
  • Snap (hone your translation skills)
  • Gapfill (master those spellings)

What’s more, the app keeps track of your performance on each verb, so you can check your progress at any time. You might be surprised at the verbs you’re finding easiest / trickiest!

As little – or as much – as you like!

You can choose which tenses to drill in the app settings. Just beginning in the language? Try just the present tense for now. A dab hand? Test your mastery by selecting all tenses to test in the drill games.

Whatever your level, we hope there are plenty of linguistic goodies in the app for you. Check out our full range of iOS apps here for more language tools for your Apple device!

Spanish Verb Blitz maxed out on verbs!

GeoGlot’s popular app for Spanish learners, Spanish Verb Blitz, has been maxed out with a huge update to its verb bank.

The app now contains over 250 verbs, with whole new classes of verb so you can practise:

  • Tricky stem-changing verbs like costar
  • Reflexive verbs like levantarse
  • Impersonal verbs like llover and nevar
  • Irksome special cases like -cer/-cir verbs

The update makes the app even more valuable as a reference tool, and of course, all the drill games are playable with the whole bank too.

What’s more, the app is still free on Google Play – supported by ads on static screens, but never in games.

Click here to visit the app on Google Play.

Enjoy the update, and happy learning!

Learn French, Italian and Spanish numbers!

If you’re struggling with French, Italian or Spanish numbers – small, big or even huge – then you’ll be pleased to learn that all three are now served by a free Android ‘Number Whizz’ app.

Each one contains not only a handly how-to guide to numbers in the target language, but also games for practice, a random number generator (so your friends can test you!), and a super-useful ‘Number Writer’ module, which writes in words any number you input up to 999,999,999.

The three new Number Whizz apps are available from Google Play at the following links:

As always with our Android apps, the Number Whizz apps are supported by ads in order to make them free and accessible to all students. Happy learning!
