Good apps with British English for teaching to read?

Unread post by MariaL » 29 Jun 2019, 12:40

What are good apps for young learners that teach reading skills after some basic reading capability has been achieved?

So the young kids are age 6-7 and can read the Dolphin words well and probably know verbally and passively 1500-2500 words which means they understand Peppa Pig on youtube. They can read Ladybirds read-it-yourself level 4 with some help.

Now what would be good apps to help them develope further reading skills with British English and preferably standard British English pronunciacion? There are so many apps around, but most seem to be sadly with American accent.

Also I would gladly wellcome suggestions for books or resources for reaching the next level. I have designed the teaching so far myself usong several resources but am a bit unsure how to proceed next,
