Master Language Arts Anytime, Anywhere, On Any Device

NEW YORK, March 15, 2013—StraightAce Learning, a powerful system of study aids for middle school students, announces the launch of StraightAce English: Grammar and Vocabulary, a language arts tool created to make learning manageable and improve grades through engaging study. Completely aligned with Common Core State Standards, the system is available on personal computers and mobile devices, bringing clear, easy-to-follow lessons to students wherever they are. StraightAce Learning can be integrated into classroom instruction, and supplemented at home through student review.

The first installment in the English series enhances students’ skills in three core areas: grammar, language skills, and vocabulary. Within these core areas, students receive targeted practice to master skills appropriate for their grade level, supplementing middle school lessons with valuable content and fun features, such as trophies and rewards, to maintain interest.

“We want students to be successful, and that means giving them the tools to learn wherever they are and on any device available to them,” said Shigeki Matsuo, president of Benesse America. “Just 15 minutes a day studying with StraightAce is enough to show positive improvements in test scores, and encourages struggling students to succeed. Plus, the StraightAce Link dashboard gives teachers and parents the ability to monitor activity and help students achieve, building a strong academic foundation.”

StraightAce English: Grammar and Vocabulary has 1,500 questions aligned to Common Core State Standards that are easily integrated into classroom curriculum. The learning system is available on any Web-connected device, and the cloud-based system saves progress between devices for a seamless, mobile learning experience. For more information, to download the StraightAce app, or to begin using the Web version, visit straightace.com. Additionally, during 2013, StraightAce Learning will launch programs for writing, reading, speaking, and listening.
