LinguaTAB with School & Nursery Admissions App
The School Admissions App runs on LinguaTAB and enables teachers and school staff to collect details of new arrivals, or those who have difficulty with English, easily and effectively. It is far cheaper than paying for interpreters to come to your school. The completed questionnaire can be saved, emailed, or printed out. When pupils transfer class or school, the information can be easily transferred with them.
The App works as an audio form-filling tool: Parents select their home language and listen to a set of nested questions.
They touch the answers (written and spoken in their home language) and the App automatically fills in the corresponding field in English. Complex and sensitive questions are asked in a friendly and accurate way using human translations and voices.
There are 70 key questions, each with several permutations of answers. The form is thematically arranged with questions.
You can save information on contacts in cases of emergency, and information about the pupil, including:
- Languages and fluency
- Medication and allergies
- Dietary requirements
- Community links
- Homework and other information to support the pupil
- Pupil's interests
The large screen tablet is segmented into two columns; English and the home language, to provide clarity to both parties.

The App has 70 key questions in an ever growing list of languages including Arabic, Bulgarian, Czech, French, Hungarian, Kurdish, Lithuanian, Panjabi, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Sylheti (Bangladesh) etc. LinguaTAB has a 10 inch screen and is light - weighing 1.2kg - but robust. It has usb re-chargeable batteries, and has all the usual functions of a typical tablet: internet connectivity, gps, speech to voice etc.

The LinguaTAB is an android tablet which differs from many others in that it can print out .pdf forms. The price for the tablet alone is £250.00 plus vat. The price of the Admissions App is £150 plus vat. The app, since it's so 'heavy' with audio files, will only run on LinguaTAB. Therefore, if you ordered the LinguaTAB with the Admissions App, the price is £50 less at £350 plus vat. (If you had to translate and narrate just one language, this would be over £150. Now you are getting 17 languages, to be used as often as possible.)
