App to practice English.
The Shortcut app is an extension of The Safe Path app. It has 1,738 sentences divided in three tenses – PRESENT, PAST, and FUTURE. All sentences are presented in both audio and written format. It holds the 12 verb tenses, active and passive voice, regular, irregular, and modal verbs, indicative and subjunctive moods, in both simple and complex sentences. The Shortcut brings longer sentences, with more Information Questions than The Safe Path app does. The sentences are presented at a rather faster pace, allowing you to speak faster and more fluently as you use the audio feed to improve pronunciation and intonation through simultaneous repetition. It also brings a larger number of complex sentences compared with The Safe Path app. It does not bring the Mental Substitutions, which are present in The Safe Path, in order to let you exercise the oral part of The Safe Path only.
The Shortcut lets you exercise your listening, speaking, and reading skills. It also offers you all the sentences in writing, so that you can check spelling, word order, and grammar.
You will listen to real-speed English, work with useful sentences, and be in control of your progress, as you learn how your mind elaborates structures to give you correct and direct sentences. The HELP button of The Safe Path app was adapted and improved so that you may learn the First Law of English to elaborate sentences, in case you do not know it.
There are 180 affirmative sentences, 180 confirmation questions, 180 short answers, and 1,198 information questions. All these 1,738 sentences are accessed either following the Safe Path or at random. You can play them as many times as you want. You can start by listening or reading them. You are able to go along the way you like it. You are free to challenge yourself, play games, take a shortcut, or just feel comfortable enjoying your progress as you study and practice your English.
The HELP button is accessed on the labyrinth screen, where the #s are.
The PRESENT has 10 modules of sentences, the PAST has 6, and the FUTURE has 2. Each module has 10 sentences. Each sentence offers an average of another 10 sentences as you walk The Safe Path. There is a total of 1,738 sentences.
The Shortcut is easy to use, safe to learn, and nice to play.
