Are language learning apps effective? Are language learning apps for kids effective? Appsolutely!
Children learn best when they are entertained. When we have fun, we activate the emotional area of our brain which is close to its memory storage unit (Adžija y Sindik, 2014). At Lingokids, we wanted to prove that our application is more effective than traditional teaching methods, so we collaborated with psychologists at the Universidad de Complutense in Madrid who tested our product on a group of five-year-olds. The results remarkably favored the Lingokids games. The children in the experimental group of Lingokids retained twice as many words as those who were presented vocabulary using flashcards.

Learn Anywhere and Anytime
Magic happens when you let your child set the pace
You never know what will capture your children's interest. Some days they may be in the mood for activities or games that are familiar to them. Other days, they may want to try something they've never done before! Playing Lingokids will offer them both of these options. Ideally, children should use the Lingokids application four or five times a week for about 15 - 30 minutes at a time so that they can learn something new and practice material they’ve reviewed in the past. But this is just a light suggestion! Find a daily routine that works for you based on your screen time rules at home.
