A LISTEN-AND-RECORD ACTIVITY ENCOURAGES SPEAKING
Each animated video comes with an engaging listen-and-record activity that encourages your child to say and repeat the words from the video, building confidence in speaking over time. Children can listen to the narrator, record themselves and compare their pronunciation with the narrator.

GAMES TO PRACTISE SPELLING AND CHECK UNDERSTANDING
Each set of animated videos comes with challenging word and spelling games to help children learn and understand the words they see in the videos.

UNDERSTAND YOUR CHILD’S PROGRESS IN THE PARENTS’ AREA
On the progress screen in the Parents' area, you can see how your child is progressing in four areas: Videos, Speaking, Spelling and Understanding.

AVAILABLE IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
The app is available in English, Chinese, Spanish and French. Go to the Parents' area to change the language.
