Audible Review

What is Audible?

The app covers thousands of audiobooks in different genes — from timeless classics to the latest releases. Furthermore, all the audiobook apps are downloadable so you’ll be able to reach them even if you’re offline. With an Audible subscription, you can also access all their original podcasts for free as well as a long list of others, so we’ve found the free educational podcasts available now. 

And if you’re thinking that all the audiobook apps have a huge collection, Audible covers more than 150 00 books for now and its number is growing every day. As for the latest book releases, the audio version appears on the app the day the printed version is being released.

Plus, the generous amount of audiobooks in the app are free and you can also get some new books by special prices. Thereby, the app regularly gives its users multiple gifts and coupons you can spend on free audiobooks and more. It also needs to be said, all the audiobooks in the app are of HQ quality and have quality narration.

On top of the audiobooks, the app also covers various podcasts and even audio versions of the newspapers. Besides, you can skip the chapters while listening to the books and even pick the playback speed you’re comfortable with.

How does Audible work?

By signing up to Audible on the standard membership, you receive one new audiobook every month you are a member. You can choose from a range of membership plans and which one you have will determine how many Audible “credits” you receive each month, which can be exchanged for audiobooks on the service.

How Audible will benefit students?

Audible can be a magic wand to use here. Students can select from even the most recent publications, choose narrators whom they may have seen on television or heard on the radio and settle back to hear the story. The narrators chosen are, on the whole, excellent. They use their skills to bring the words alive as they read. Many students will select their next audio book based on the narrator and thus hear stories they may never have encountered before.

Some children like to read along with the audio and chose books based on copies they have at home. This app encourages children to read with a greater grasp of comprehension and to speed up their reading. The range and quality of spoken books is breath-taking and children can consume a vast amount of literature on journeys, waiting rooms, anywhere they can use a phone or a tablet. This enables children to develop more vocabulary, understanding of style, appreciation of plot and character development and simply to enjoy books.

Teachers and tutors of the 11+ recommend children read frequently. Children may be asked about books they have recently read at the interview conducted in some schools. Audible provides an opportunity for children to have read, heard and understood a recent book. Even reluctant readers.

The selection does not end at fiction. Factual books are also available and can be used to bring studies alive. Tales of arctic adventure, ship wreck survival or the pitfalls of being the youngest in a family of 6 are all here. Children can learn to appreciate different genres of literature, notice the differences between modern tales and those from history, to see the world from a thousand different perspectives.

Some parents will feel that the monthly cost to access the audible archive is too high. Possibly these parents would feel that money was better spend on ‘real’ books. Others would point out that their child has gained much more than a packed bookshelf from audio books. These stories are kept in their child’s imagination.
