What five-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it? Short!

Who says grammar and vocabulary can’t be fun? IXL brings language arts to life next month! IXL Language Arts will offer over 30 topics for grades 2-4—with more skills and grades to come.

We’re also pleased to present creative new question types, including ordering items through drag-and-drop, as well as interactive editing exercises.

IXL Language Arts topics will include:

  • Irregular plurals
  • Subject-verb agreement
  • Comparative adjectives
  • Coordinating conjunctions
  • Homophones
  • Synonyms
  • …and much more!

For a sneak peek of IXL Language Arts in action, check out our new video.  If you’d like to be notified as soon as Language Arts is ready, you can sign up on our Coming Soon page.  We can’t wait to share it with you!

My 3 children have ixl through school and it was very beneficial for learning and playing catch up for an English Language Learner in reviewing vocabulary as they worked on math concepts. I saw the information that you were planning to add a language piece. I received an email that said it had been added. I see that the language piece is added for 2nd through 4th graders and this would be beneficial to our family, but I am not sure how we access this. If there is a school memebership, is the new language art piece separate? Are we only able to access it if we have an individual/family memebership?

Hi, Tamara. We’re so glad to hear your children are enjoying IXL math. In regards to language arts, are you located outside of the U.S.? IXL language arts is available for both schools and families, but it is currently accessible on the U.S. edition only.

There are no Language Arts reports on http://uk.ixl.com/ela/!

Hi, Horatiu. I’m afraid IXL language arts subscriptions are available on the U.S. edition only.

Horatiu September 25, 2013 at 9:11 pm

In the U.S. edition do we have to pay extra for language arts subscriptions. Language art subscriptions are included in the reports ?

Reply

The IXL Blog September 27, 2013 at 10:04 am

Yes, there is an additional cost for language arts, but we do offer a discounted price if users subscribe to both subjects (math and language arts). Language arts subscriptions do include all reports that you would normally get with a math subscription.

Horatiu September 25, 2013 at 10:01 pm

Language art subscriptions contain only sample problems ?

Reply

The IXL Blog September 27, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Hi, Horatiu. Like math, each language arts subscription provides unlimited access to questions in hundreds of skills.

Horatiu September 25, 2013 at 10:07 pm

For UK edition language art subscriptions will available in future ?

The IXL Blog September 27, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Currently, we don’t have any set plans to create international editions of language arts, but we will certainly let users know if that changes.

Hi,

When is 1st grade and 7th grade language arts coming? Will 1st grade also cover adjectives, capitalization, and punctuation?

Hi, Jay. We’ll be well into middle school grades by this time next year, and we plan to work on 1st grade after that. And yes, 1st grade will cover adjectives, capitalization, and punctuation.

Hey IXL people!

We currently have a year’s subscription to math ixl and have paid for each of our three school aged kids to have an account. We have enjoyed math ixl greatly and are very interested in buying the language arts as well, but exactly HOW much extra would it be for us? I keep trying to find somewhere on the site where the prices are listed for someone who is already a subscriber and am having difficulty. Thanks!

Hi, Lindsey -

If you already have an existing membership and would like to add language arts, the price will be pro-rated to reflect the amount of time left in your membership. You can see exactly how much this would be by following these steps:

Sign in to your parent profile
Click on the drop-down menu under “Welcome, Parent!”
Click “Manage your account”
Select the “add language arts ” link in the Membership information box

You’re also welcome to contact our membership services team at [email protected] or 877-282-4400; they’d be happy to help out!

Can you hint as to whether you’ll be adding 5th, 6th, and/or 7th grade Language Arts modules during the 2013-2014 school year?

Hi, Dan. We don’t have exact dates yet, but we’re currently working hard to expand our existing language arts grades, along with grade 5. We will be well into middle school grades by this time next year. If you’d like to be notified as soon as these new grades become available, you’re welcome to sign up at http://www.ixl.com/comingsoon.

I have trouble some times on problems in language arts that dosent make sense to me because it wasent explained. I think there should be an note pad so teachers/parents can explain for me, like email, only just for ixl. maybe for all subjects.

The IXL Blog November 20, 2013 at 2:10 pm

Hi, Noah. Great idea! We’ve passed your suggestion on to our development team. In the meantime, if you are having trouble with a skill, we suggest that you go talk to your teacher or parents in person.

Noah Earley November 21, 2013 at 3:29 pm

That would be great! only what if if they are busy and some where else what could i do then wait?

The IXL Blog November 22, 2013 at 11:35 am

Hi, Noah. You can always work on another IXL skill or something else in the meantime! We’re sure that your parents or teacher would be happy to help as soon as they are available.

Hi, Zara. Yes, there is a discount if you have both a math and language arts membership. There is also an additional discount for each child you add to your account! You can find our pricing on our membership page. Please keep in mind that IXL Language Arts is currently only available for the U.S. edition of IXL. If you have any questions about adding language arts or another child to your account, you can also contact [email protected] and your account manager can help you!
