TOOL FOR COMMUNICATING WITH PARENTS IN THEIR HOME LANGUAGES
Talking Points is a communications app for iOS and Android devices intended to break down language barriers between parents and teachers, which can hinder efforts to give updates and ask questions. Teachers can input messages in English and have the app translate them into more than 20 languages. Then recipients who don’t speak English can reply in their native languages. The app offers text-message-like functionality. Costs: Although this app is free, paid tiers are also available.
