LES (Norge)2 is developed to assist foreign speakers learning how to read Norwegian.
The app may be used in three ways:
1: Learning Norwegian words. 240 words arranged in 8 categories. The categories correspond to a great extent to the subjects in "Subject Curriculum for Norwegian and Social studies for adult immigrants" and are picked out in collaboration with experienced teachers. The words are presented with a picture and pronunciation.
2: Learning how the different letters sound in Norwegian (including the compound graphemes kj, skj and ng). One can choose between small and capital letters.
3:Learning to contract letters into words. When a finger is drawn over the letters in a word, the sounds are being read out and one can hear the actual word. The app contains games in each category, so the learner can practice and automate the words.
