Spanish for Kids for iOS

By WireCloud $1.99

Developer's Description

Are you looking for a fun, effective way to share the Spanish language with your child?

Wouldnt it be great to give them a head start hearing and speaking Spanish, while their growing brains are literally language learning machines?

How great would it be if you could use the power of the computer and attraction of a video game to open your childs mind to hundreds of Spanish words?

The best learning feels more like play than work

My name is Sandy, and I grew up outside the US. When I moved into the country, I made friends with lots of bilingual parents with small children. They often talked about how sad they were that their kids werent learning their native language. They couldnt share the stories and the songs of their own youth with their children.

Some of them tried to spend time speaking Spanish with their youngsters, but didnt always have the time, and werent sure how to introduce a second language. They tried some computer-based language learning programs, but soon realized that they worked great for readers, but not for kids who couldnt yet follow written instructions.

My husband Steve is a computer programmer and Internet expert. When I asked him if he knew of any good language programs for children, he did a search and came up empty. Thats when he got this look in his eyes (if youve ever lived with a programmer, you know exactly what Im talking about), and said, Why dont we make one ourselves?

The Rosetta Stone for the Pre-Kindergarten Set

We researched the most effective language programs in the market - Rosetta Stone, Berlitz, Pimsleur - and modeled the best features of each. From Pimsleur we took spaced repetition. From Rosetta Stone, positive feedback and engagement. From Berlitz, understanding in context.

Steve also is a big fan of video games, so he understands how to make an activity fun, engaging and challenging. Together, we started experimenting. We had the audio professionally recorded (we definitely wanted kids to learn from a native Spanish speaker), Steve found simple and cheerful pictures, and wrote a simple yet powerful program that we call Easy Spanish For Kids.

My friends immediately loved it, and encouraged us to make it available to Spanish-speaking parents everywhere. (OK, and non-Spanish-speaking parents who want their children to learn Spanish too.)

Heres whats in Easy Spanish For Kids

- Develop a basic vocabulary in Spanish with over 120 words and sentences

- Immerse your child through our use of a native Spanish speaker

- Form word relationships quickly with our eight different categories of content

- High-quality and fun illustrations help increase retention

- Build a solid foundation in Learning Mode, where basic vocabulary is made easy

Because its so simple, you dont have to worry about your child spending hours on the computer. Easy Spanish For Kids is designed to entertain and educate children in just minutes a day. Its not a chore, and its not an addictive online game.

You can play along with your child, but you dont have to. The program is so clear and intuitive, theyll be happily learning Spanish on their own in seconds. And dont be surprised when they start trying to teach you to say, The giraffe has a long neck in Spanish!

If youre looking for a fun and easy way to introduce the beautiful and rich Spanish language and heritage to your child, we hope youll give our labor of love a try.

And please let us know what you think!

Thank You,

Sandy & Steve
