IXL, I thought that it was wonderful that you English, but what would be better is the subject “Other Lang.” Teaching students other languages is a useful talent for young learners. In youth, the brain can absorb more than when it is older. So, in conclusion, putting this subject would be a great leap to the future.

Hi Ahmet, thanks for your feedback! Stay tuned because we are looking into developing content to learn foreign languages.

I would love Spanish for beginners and advanced beginners as well.

The IXL reports are really extensive and the design team has done some really good work to show Real Time student work and showing the Sections that show a page view of students completion of that section. This is great! Sometimes students are racking up problems solved but are jumping around and not completing sections that get more difficult near the end of the problem set. Great!
