Review: Kids English provides a true multimedia learning experience

Learn English letters and words with easy-to-follow onscreen cues.

Kids English HD is an app that hits the right mark in almost every way for small children. Combining engaging gameplay with a plethora of options and different learning styles, this app will provide a means for almost any young child to start learning English--whether written letters and words or the spoken language.

The design and interface of the app are perfect for small children. Without any onscreen ads to distract from the action, you can choose from five different activities, each of them designed to help children learn in a different way. Drawing cues help children learn how to write letters onscreen, while picture prompts take those letter exercises and convert them to words. Arrow shooting games, word matching, and even a low-stress drawing interface are all great ways to keep children engaged and learning, however they prefer to do so. At any time, just tap the frog's head and go back to the home screen, which is just colorful enough to be attractive without being too busy.

Kids English HD is a well-designed app that will help children not only learn, but also get excited about learning. Whether you have a preschool-age child just learning their letters or a child learning English as a second language, the visual and audible nature of this app make it a perfect companion to more traditional exercises and learning curriculums at this age. It's a very good option for most children.
