Shmoop Goes Global to the Max with SAT® and ACT® Test Prep Materials in Arabic, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish

Shmoop has translated its SAT® and ACT® prep into four languages, making it easy for international students and English Language Learners to ace the exam and get into the college of their dreams.

Juniors and seniors returning to the classroom this fall already have one eye on the university of their dreams, and Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com) is ready to help get them there.

Shmoop University, Inc., a digital curriculum company that aims to make learning fun and accessible, has SAT® and ACT® test prep materials for 2014-2015 that are sure to impress students, teachers, and parents alike. Far more affordable than an in-person tutor but just as personal, Shmoop’s SAT® and ACT® prep products include practice exams and drills, vocabulary flashcards, humorous and informative explanations of even the driest math concepts, and much more.

And these products aren’t available just in English. Now Shmoop offers SAT® and ACT® test prep in Arabic, Chinese, and Korean, in addition to Spanish. Students and parents can purchase Shmoop in multiple languages, while schools and districts are eligible for group discounts. Of course, students still have to take the exams in English, so Shmoop presents example reading passages and test questions in English. But explanations of answers to sample test questions along with additional review sections are offered in students’ native tongues. This way, they can quickly figure out what they got wrong on their practice tests and be ready to take home a perfect score on the real thing. Then they’re just an application essay (or four) away from the Ivy League.

Offering multilingual test prep materials isn’t the only way Shmoop is going global, either. Shmoopers can now enjoy test prep videos with Arabic, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish subtitles. Soon to come are literature learning guides in more languages, Common Core Standards and explanations of the Standards in Spanish, and career planning information in Spanish. Shmoop welcomes new users from across the globe—and English Language Learners here at home—into its e-learning community.

Shmoop Launches SmartPhone-Ready Video Test Prep to Help Students Study for SAT*, ACT*, and CAHSEE

Shmoop delivers free Test Prep videos to students via email, allowing them to study quickly and rigorously.

Shmoop's Video Test Prep

When it comes to cram time, students want their information—stat. With Shmoop’s Video Test Prep, students can study in quick bursts whenever they have a few minutes to spare.

When a student registers, Shmoop will send them three videos a day, tailored to their SAT*, ACT*, or CAHSEE needs. Students can then watch the videos in the convenience of their own home/school/bus/circus tent. And there’s no need to set a study reminder: Shmoop will automatically send the videos, prompting students to watch. Plus, because the videos are relatable, they won’t end in an unplanned nap.

Each video includes a sample exam question and walks students through the process of answering it. By providing detailed answer explanations, Shmoop fosters comprehension, so that students don’t just get practice with one question; they are able to improve their skills for an entire concept.

Shmoop will send these videos directly to a student’s inbox every day for thirty days; by the end of the month, students will have reviewed the equivalent of a full-length practice exam. Bonus: each video is tagged to the Common Core. It’s every teacher’s dream.

Go ahead and sign up—Shmoop will take care of the rest.
