I decided to play Rainforest Rescue as I was looking for a simple game, which would not take long to play and did not require registration or downloading. It is easy to learn, is enjoyable and gives instant feedback. Itís not devastating if you lose as you just start again! In my opinion itís a fun way for children to learn about protecting the rainforest. Iím also very interested in using apps for learning English. With mobile learning you can take your English learning with you wherever you go. You can find a wide range of learning apps on the following sites: http://www.cambridgeapps.org/ http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/apps http://elt.oup.com/feature/global/apps/?cc=global&selLanguage=en SL
