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?"
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?
The curriculum of Lingokids is structured on weekly topics. The topic that corresponds to your child each week is marked with a small label in the upper right corner that says "Learn Now".
We recommend that each activity in this topic be repeated as many times as possible throughout the week. In our method, the repetition of activities is the best way to solidify a child's learning. Repetition helps make language skills automatic. Once all the activities have been completed without errors, the test corresponding to that topic will be unlocked in the Curriculum section in Parents Mode.
The other four topics that appear in Kids Mode are the two previous topics (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). Each week the next topic is labeled "Learn Now."

If your child 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.
How can I help my child?
Learning English can be fun for the whole family! Games, activities, songs and audiobooks can be a fun way for the whole household to learn words and phrases.
