How does Lingokids work?
Lingokids is simple. Children learn while they play. The app will adapt to the level of the child, adding complexity as your child progresses. The lessons follow a curriculum that focuses on a new topic every week of the year. Each lesson consists of learning activities such as games, traceables, videos, songs, and more. The interactive games each have 6 levels of grammatical difficulty. Activities also are connected to mini-tests that help parents understand how much vocabulary their child has learned.
The app is simple, but it is worth it to take a moment to familiarize yourself with each part!
Your child only needs to enjoy learning through play! The learning occurs as they play activities. They can play different activities multiple times with increasing difficulty until they have fully understood the concepts and vocabulary.
The Learning Path
The curriculum of Lingokids is structured on weekly topics. These topics make up the Learning Path. The topic that corresponds to your child each week is marked with a small label in the upper right corner that says "Learn Now". The following week, the next topic will be featured.
We recommend that each activity in this topic be repeated as many times as possible throughout the week. The other four topics that appear in Kids Mode are the two previous topics in the Learning Path (in case you want to review them) and the next two topics (in case you end up with the theme of the week and want to continue advancing).
In our method, the repetition of activities is the best way to solidify a child's learning. Repetition helps make language skills automatic. The repetition of activities will also help your child receive stickers. Each time a student completes an activity, they receive a sticker! The Sticker Album is fun way to track your child’s progress and motivate them to keep learning! You can read this article to learn more about how the Sticker Album works.
If you would like to explore activities outside of the Learning Path that's ok, too! In Kids Mode, simply use the icons above to select games, songs, and audiobooks. These will contain activities from a variety of topics.
You can also press "... and many more" to see a complete list of activities in each icon.
