Welcome to Snap Language
What is Snap Language?
Snap Language™ is a collection of instructional materials and learning resources that support the development of day-to-day, academic, and professional language skills in reading, vocabulary, grammar, writing, listening, and speaking.
We have two main components: Snap Language (enrichment) and Snap Language Learner (for language learners). We also strive to advance an understanding of language and linguistics in general.
Enrichment materials for those interested in improving their language skills and in research-based topics in language and linguistics.
Snap Language Learner
Learning materials geared toward language acquisition and improvement for basic, intermediate, and advanced English language learners(ELLs)

For the Language Learner
Snap Language Learner materials are designed to assist English-language learners (ELL) in various learning contexts such as English as a second language (ESL) or English for speakers of other languages (ESOL).
Our specialized materials will help you learn skills in reading, vocabulary, writing, listening, speaking, and academic English.
Lessons and Courses
You can select materials you find useful to you at your level.
Most lessons include exercises so you can assess your understanding of the materials.
Our resources include videos, exercises, and diagnostic and performance assessments. As you learn content, you also develop academic and professional skills.
Guided exercises provide activities before, during, and after watching a video (note-taking, comprehension, and practice).
Snap Language and Snap Language Learner materials are designed with both students and instructors in mind.
That is why instructors often assign our materials in instructional models such as flipped-classroom, distance-learning, or hybrid models.
Students learn at their own pace by watching instructional videos and working through lessons on their own. In the classroom, teachers use our lesson guides to check comprehension and retention, practice, and extend the material with activities promoting higher-order and critical thinking.
Snap Language materials are designed to help you improve your language-related skills in reading, vocabulary, and writing.
If you are interested in language and linguistics in general, topics span psychological, developmental, and social aspects of language such as bilingualism, language teaching and learning, language change, and so on.
