The Lingokids Curriculum
What will my child learn?
Every week, Lingokids features a weekly topic for your child to learn new vocabulary about different themes in English. For example in the Numbers topic, your child can play an interactive game to practice counting, read or listen to an audiobook about numbers, trace numbers 1 through 10 with our animated traceables, and sing-along to our favorite songs about numbers. In our games, beginners will receive clues and simple instructions, "One apple." Intermediate instructions use complete sentences such as, "Lisa wants one apple." At the highest level, children must listen closely for the key word, for example, "Lisa would like one apple. Can you help her?"
The content that your child sees is controlled by our Learning Gears™ system, which adjusts each lesson to his progress every time he plays. The grammatical structures of each interactive lesson change according to your child's unique learning speed and correct answers. Each lesson has six levels of difficulty. This is how a phrase might be presented at each Learning Gears™ level:
2. She wants an apple.
3. She is asking for an apple.
4. Could you give her an apple, please?
5. I think an apple is just what she wants.
6. I’m guessing an apple would be a good choice.
Playing the interactive lessons multiple times reinforces and commits to memory the learning objectives, and also gives your child exposure to more levels of grammatical structures.
Your child can play and learn about this selected topic, or explore and learn freely in Lingokids. Within each topic in Lingokids your child can interact and learn from a selection of games, songs, videos, and activities to fit his or her level and learning style.
How do I know the topic of the week?
Every Saturday, you will receive an email that tells you about that particular week's topic. In these emails we will recommend Lingokids activities to get your child started, and we will also suggest ways that you can learn together as family. You can also see the weekly topic in the Parents mode of Lingokids. The featured topic of the week will always appear first in the list in Parents mode.
How can I help my child learn each topic?
We will send you an email every Saturday with family activities and direct links to the games, songs, and traceables of the weekly topic for you to explore with your child. You can help your child by learning the songs with your child and practicing the vocabulary of each unit.
From the parent's section you can print out picture dictionaries, vocab checklists, and everyday phrases for you as a parent to use with your little one. You can also find ideas for family activities on the last page of the printable worksheets. You can download these printable worksheets from the parent's settings screen.
You can also find materials directly within the application. Navigate to your parents settings and select "Printable worksheets."
