One of the most appropriate arenas for informal self-directed learning with handheld devices is study of languages, and Cambridge University Press is conscious about it. This app belongs to a serie of grammar activities apps that have its counterpart on books.

Navigation is exemplarily scaffolded with a well designed help and useful tips. Media is used as much as possible, with images related to exercises context, and functions like read aloud or record your own voice.
