Free 8-week Classroom Trial

Whether you are teaching in-person, remotely, or hybrid, Blue Canoe makes it possible for every student with a mobile phone to practice and improve their spoken English every day.

When students commit to 10 minutes of daily Blue Canoe practice, they establish and reinforce positive speech habits that boost their comprehensibility and speaking confidence.

See Blue Canoe in action with a free 8-week classroom trial for you and your students!* We’ll support you throughout, with resources for getting started, viewing your students’ activity, and evaluating Blue Canoe’s impact on learner language awareness, pronunciation, and confidence.

* Limited to one free trial per teacher. Once registered in the Teacher Pilot Program, you may initiate your free trial at any time for up to 25 students. All teachers/learners are eligible, including those who have participated in a past “Free for Classrooms” program.

Who is eligible?

  • Colleges and Universities
  • High schools
  • Non-profit organizations

Feedback from teachers


“I love that they can practice and improve on their own. I can use limited class time better.”

– Valerie Kelley, Associate Faculty, Edmonds College (WA, U.S.)

Ginessa Payne

“Great job! This app is motivating and playful, yet teaches the most critical features of English pronunciation (thought groups, word stress, peak vowels).”

– Ginessa Lawson Payne, Instructional Consultant, Texas A&M University (TX, U.S.)


“I like having a teacher in students’ phones, listening and correcting, just like I do.”

– Heather Chol, CLDE Coordinator and Instructional Coach, Secondary, Lotus School for Excellence (CO, U.S.)

Why use Blue Canoe?

Teachers love Blue Canoe

I love knowing that my students can really practice their English pronunciation outside of class and receive the same kind of feedback that I give them in class.

The Daily Plan gives my students a specific goal, and thanks to the teacher’s dashboard, I can assign Blue Canoe as daily homework and know that they’ve done it.
