Schools and students are loving Audiopi
Audiopi has been very useful and I am singing your praises. Our students achieved 93% grades 4-9 at literature - and the podcasts really helped our pupils to go into the exams feeling confident about the texts.Also, the podcasts are very engaging and particularly useful for helping pupils who struggle with reading chunks of text, such as those with dyslexia

I like the way I can listen to a debate on the way home from school; I don’t have to be in a classroom or at a desk!
