Of course, with the advent of smartphones, it has become much easier to study in an educational institution. And the point is not even that lectures can be recorded on a dictaphone, and then taken notes, in app stores, and App Store in particular, a cloud of educational applications appeared, created in order to make it as easy as possible to study various disciplines and foreign languages. We recently wrote about the best flashcards for learning languages, now on to grammar.
Developers have to look for non-standard teaching methods, and the English grammar simulator is a vivid confirmation of this.
Pumpkin 2, so the creator of the application Dmitry Borisov called his simulator, which is designed to teach the owners iPhone and iPad grammar in English.
The application is unique, the form of information presentation is organized in the form of competitions on the knowledge of the basics of English grammar, and I want to say that the method really works.
It's hard to bring yourself to spend precious free time cramming simple grammar rules in English. It's another matter if you have someone to compete with.

You can compete on one device both with a real person and with artificial intelligence, with the latter, by the way, it's not easy to compete. Pumpkin has 3 modes: training, competition and exam. To begin with, I advise you to go through a training session to master the skills of working in the application interface. Yes, it is as simple and friendly as possible, but still it would be nice to know how, for example, to get a translation of some English words if the vocabulary is not yet so rich. For this you need to make a “swipe”.
Competitions are organized in the form of a game of tic-tac-toe,
you have a playing field of 6 empty cells at your disposal, tap on one of them and choose the option that meets the specified criteria. The criteria are indicated in rows and columns, left and top, respectively. If the option you have chosen is correct, an answer appears in the corresponding cell and it is painted in your color. If the answer is not correct, the move goes to the opponent, and the cell remains empty. The goal is to give as many correct answers as possible as quickly as possible.
If you have just started to master the English language and do not know the meaning of some of the words or phrases depicted, you can get their translation in one motion, it can be a tap on the corresponding icon when choosing answer options, or a swipe to translate an assignment.
You can compete both in Game Center and on one device in two modes: single player and party with 10 wins. I won't talk about the exam, it's better to see once than hear 100 times.
The quality of the application leaves extremely positive emotions, the interface is simple, clear, all the elements are so large that studying on iPhone is no less comfortable than on iPad. Pumpkin costs 2 in App Store 169 rubles, the price is fully justified, because the app is not only useful but also fun. Don't believe me, take a look at the full 5-star rating, it says a lot. The application can be downloaded from our shared account.
