Epic App has now been enhanced with many features to make your learning more effective. When learning with the Epic app, you can practice by yourself through Listening - Understanding - Speaking - Writing - Role playing games, helping you understand videos, practice listening and speaking standard with native intonation.

Here are the steps to guide you to learn with videos on Epic App:

Steps to follow:

  • Listen to each dialogue line. You can make the voice slower by pressing Slow (3) and listen to the subtitle repeatedly by pressing Loop(1)
  • Compare and contrast with the subtitles to identify your mistakes when the video shows subtitles.
  • Press the blue circle icon (6) again to listen one more time. This time, pay attention to where you heard wrong

Note: Don't forget to adjust the auto-subtitle display time according to your learning speed for the best effect (avoid the case where the subtitles appear too early to prevent your line guessing). You can set them at Time set (4). In addition, you can adjust the subtitle display, translate subtitles or transliterate, adjust the color and size of subtitles in Sub (2) and Setting (5).

5. Write

Target: Dictation is one of the best methods to improve your listening fluency. By transferring what you hear into text, your brain will have to work hard and fast to process new information, which means that you’ll need to work on both your listening and writing skills simultaneously. Over time, you’ll be able to recognize the hard words or sounds that you used to miss before.

Steps to follow:

  • Listen to a dialogue line
  • Type a missing word in a blank. Epic will show you whether you listen to it right or wrong.



5. Roleplay

Target: The Roleplay (or dubbing) activity will help you speak English more fluently and naturally. You will dub speakers in video and your speaking speed has to match with video time.

Steps to follow:

  • Listen to a group of dialogue lines
  • Press on the record icon (the micro icon) to start recording your voice within time limits (You can record your speech as many times as you want). Epic will mark your pronunciation compared with the original dialogue.

In addition, allows you to adjust whether or not to hide the words of the category: Noun, verb, preposition or hide the whole paragraph.


7. Special cases

  • If you just want to practice with some certain video scenes instead of the whole video, or if your chosen video is over 3 minutes, you can use the Cut a clip feature to split the video into small pieces.

To split a clip, drag the start point or the endpoint in the direction you want to trim the clip. As you drag, the clip shortens or lengthens. Then name the clip and press Finish.
