With only so many hours in the classroom, most English learners simply don’t get enough high-quality speaking practice.

Built around the revolutionary Color Vowel® system, Blue Canoe provides learners with easy access to daily pronunciation practice with intelligent feedback.

Teachers track student engagement through an educator’s dashboard that displays students’ daily, weekly and all-time practice.

“Instructors see proof of progress as their students’ screenshots fill up with green dots. As the weeks go on, students move from word to phrase and to sentence, imbibing stress, rhythm, and intonation.

Blue Canoe and the Color Vowel system are truly amazing; being able to listen and communicate comprehensibly is, indeed, a precious gift for students, and a necessary tool for instructors.”

– Aviva Katzenell, Academic Director
Intensive English Institute, Florida Atlantic University
