Phrasalstein (iOS & Android): Learn English with Mary Shelly and Horror Movies for FREE!

As of 2014, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein will celebrate its 196th anniversary. As a way to pay tribute to the author, Cambridge University Press is launching Phrasalstein, a free mobile application that shows us the correct use of phrasal verbs in a visual and dynamic way. Inspired by the great classics from the horror film genre, Phrasalstein has 100 animated illustrations that show some of the most used English phrasal verbs.


There is even a special “cameo” by Mary Shelley herself who appears in a few of the animations. Aimed at both native English speaking children between the ages of 5 and 10 and foreigners who wish to learn English, this app is Cambridge University Press’s way of defending the power of visual, contextual and entertaining learning. The more than 400,000 downloads of Cambridge’s “The Phrasal Verb Machine”, the first app launched by the publishing house specifically designed to teach these verbs, more than supports Cambridge’s stance on visual learning. Moreover, a number of research projects have defended this method as one of the best ways of teaching English.


Phrasalstein is available for free for both iOS and Android platforms. Check it out over here:
