As our younger son transitions from infancy into life as a toddler I’ve been considering ways to include him in our homeschooling day. I started a Spanish curriculum with our older son this semester and he has really been enjoying it, but it’s really suited for 1st to 3rd grade students. So I was excited to discover the Langmobile app which was developed with children five years old and younger in mind.
Langmobile is a company that exists to “enrich the quality of life for children of all ages by providing programming and workshops designed to learn languages.” Langmobile’s desire is to see parents bond and interact with their children as they take full advantage of the prime window of opportunity to teach their children a second language.
Langmobile Mobile App was just released last month and is built upon their method of language learning. You’ll find it on iTunes and Google Play. While many apps are designed for independent play or activity time, the Langmobile app is built with parent and child interaction in mind.
The app features:
- Lessons in English, French and Spanish
- Original songs introducing new vocabulary
- Easy to follow parent’s guides for each lesson
- Engaging, hands-on activities designed to get your kids moving
Spanish Corazon Lesson-Playtime Activity: Adding a heart (corazon) to things they like (me gusta) and dislike (no me gusta). [He is a big fan of himself and dislikes helping with laundry.] Lil’Bro was just taking his brother’s hearts off of things.
Currently the app is available for $1.99 in iTunes and $1.84 in Google Play. Each language offers four lessons to start with additional lessons added free-of-charge as they become available. You can play songs directly within the app, but if you like you can purchase them for your personal library of songs.
So, here is my honest opinion of Langmobile Mobile App:
- Everything’s Planned – Essentially Langmobile is offering a language-learning curriculum in the palm of you hand. I love how everything is planned out for you. You will have to do some printing, but that can be done just before starting a new lesson.
Spanish Corazon Lesson: Learning the word “corazon” through a short video.
- Variety of Learning Styles – Langmobile’s lessons use video, songs, hands on activities and visuals making it perfect for a variety of learners. The music got our 1-year-old moving and both boys enjoyed coloring the corazon (heart).
Spanish Corazon Lesson-Coloring Page: Coloring, counting and creating the love character, while learning “Te quiero” (I love you).
- Several Languages Included – While we will probably stick to the Spanish lessons, I like that we could also try a French lesson or two if we decided.
If you’re interested in introducing your little ones to another language I recommend trying out the Langmobile app.
