Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


NEW LOW PRICE! From "First Words International HD by Hamaguchi Apps is a great international vocabulary app for kids."

Seven languages on ONE app! Designed by a licensed speech-language pathologist to strengthen both receptive AND expressive basic object naming in English, Spanish, French, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Hindi. This app is for the iPad. Now featuring a new design for the icon and homepage!

Check out our YouTube video to find out more about this app:

Apple! Manzana! Pomme! How many ways can you say it? Just select the language of your choice and start playing! This beautifully illustrated and photographed, multi-language app is perfect for the toddler or speech-delayed child who is learning how to label common nouns as well as for any child who wants to learn the names of basic objects in the following 7 languages: English, Chinese, Spanish, French, Japanese, Hindi and Russian.

A great way to informally screen a bilingual child’s receptive and expressive basic vocabulary skills.

The app has a core of 50 objects, which are shown 10 or more ways so the child with special needs can more readily generalize their meaning. For example, “chair” is shown as a wooden chair, a blue plastic lawn chair, an overstuffed upholstered chair, a rolling desk chair, and even a plastic toy pink chair.

There are 3 activities: Learn the Word, Find the Word (receptive vocabulary) and Say the Word (expressive vocabulary). In the Learn the Word activity, the child is taught the name for the word by a native speaker of the selected language by hearing and seeing it 5 times. In the Find the Word activity, the child is shown 5 pictures and is asked to find the requested object. The Say the Word game features a fun spinner and recording feature! The word is then played back and the user can compare to the model for that word, in whatever language has been chosen.

Options in the Settings: If answered correctly, a cute, short animation can be shown after a specified number of responses, depending upon the setting the user chooses (1, 3, or 5). You can select photographs, color drawings or random. Text can be “on” to support early reading skills, or “off” to support early listening skills. This is for the professional version and can save the data for up to 30 children. Results can be emailed, and missed items can be played.

Customer Reviews

Could be a lot better

I love the Hamaguchi apps, as do most of my students (I'm a speech therapist). Having their apps on days when a child won't interact with me is a lifesaver (all kids love the iPad!). That said, I'm surprised this app came from a speech therapist. Choosing an object from a field of 5 is impossible for most of my students. Most of them are working on choosing an object from a field of 2 or 3. I desperately wish you could change the number of objects in the field!!!!!!! It would make this app so much more useful. Without this, it makes the app promising but hard to use as it is.

That said, I've managed to use it with a could of kids and they enjoy it. I like how the app gives you choices between real pictures or cartoons. I work primarily with Spanish speaking children so I also love that the app comes in so many languages. If you could run an update on the Following Directions apps so they'd come in Spanish, I'd be your first customer!
