Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

This noteworthy, innovative app-based comic store uses branded comics and graphic novels (Garfield, Maze Runner, Smurfs) to teach different languages. You download the store app with the tutorial and free sample and can then buy additional titles (most priced in the $2 - $3 range) as IAP (In App Purchases).

Each comic is listed by reading level - from beginner to upper intermediate. Once you select your home language, you are prompted to choose the language you want to learn. Languages listed include English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. It is possible to toggle between the two languages and to record your own attempts to read the new language, to be played side-by-side by a native speaker. We liked how you can slow down the speech for a close listen. There's a lot of validity to this method -- using high interest, authentic material to introduce a second language.
