To help teachers provide targeted support, Scientific Learning has released the Build English Fast Offline Resources for English Learners.

Offline Resources

The Build English Fast solution is a combination of Fast ForWord® intervention for English language development, and Reading Assistant™, which uses speech recognition technology to listen to ELLs as they read aloud. The combination addresses three critical steps for English language proficiency: preparing the brain to “hear” the sounds of English; providing intensive practice in English vocabulary, grammar and reading skills; and giving students the opportunity to practice speaking and reading aloud with real-time corrective feedback. 

The core of the resources are individual, leveled lessons that supplement the Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant programs. The lessons are based on the SIOP® Model, with added differentiation for the Fast ForWord exercises.
