Learn English with the bestselling "My First 101 Words" Video App. A fun, interactive and educational app for teaching toddlers, non-English speakers and people with learning difficulties, their first 101 words in English.
A boy called Abe and a girl called Myrelle take the user through a series of videos which teaches the user different words. The words have been selected to include nouns and verbs found in resources supporting pre-school speech and language development. Each word is either an object or an action which can be represented accurately and concisely through the medium of video.
Each word is demonstrated with the appropriate action or object and the words are then spoken by Abe or Myrelle. The word is repeated in a voiceover as the word appears written on the screen.
There is a ‘play all’ option and a ‘shuffle’ option for the videos. In the standard ‘play all’ option the videos are played in a sequence (words are grouped accordingly) and the user can either replay the video (‘replay’ button) or proceed to the next one (‘next’ button). In the ‘shuffle’ option the order of words is random but the app uses the same menu system of ‘replay’ and ‘next’. The menu system uses the entire screen so that toddlers can easily navigate their way around the app.
Video was chosen as the medium for delivery because the existing apps based around this topic are either stills or animation based (and therefore inaccurate or confusing for children) and use an American accent (and are therefore not relevant for the average British or European parent).

Ratings and Reviews
Goes down a storm with our 18 month old toddler. High quality and highly recommended.
Great for encouraging speech
My 20 month old son loves this app. He's started saying a lot more words since using it, and seems to really enjoy watching the boy and girl on the videos.
It would be nice to be able to navigate back as well as forward, but that's not a major problem, and it may even be something they will add in an update.
I would highly recommend this app.
Videos work well
