Actions with Splingo is the exciting new language app from the Speech and Language Store - authors of the popular Splingo app series.
Designed by experienced SLPs, Actions with Splingo uses high- quality animations to teach children vocabulary relating to action-words, otherwise known as verbs.
The amusing animations will not only captivate your child’s attention but also provide much clearer demonstrations of the meaning of each action word than static images, thereby facilitating the learning process. Action words are an important part of a child’s vocabulary as they are essential in most sentences, but can be tricky to teach using traditional image-based activities.
Actions with Splingo can be tailored to the child’s unique needs as individual action words can be selected and specifically targeted. The vocabulary is organised in a developmental hierarchy so that the level of difficulty can be matched to the child’s ability, to help them learn whilst being rewarded with success.
Easy: blow, brush, clap, eat, drink and many more
Medium: bite, carry, cut, read, swim and many more
Hard: bake, chew, count, drop, hold and many more
The user can also select the number of instructions within each game and the child is rewarded for each correct answer with a full-screen animation complete with entertaining sound effects!
Other handy features include:
- an option to save the game and return later; a useful feature for therapists and educators working with several children on different concepts.
- written text accompanying instructions can be turned on or off
- the ability to repeat the instruction or pause the game to assist the child if necessary
- a record function, to encourage expressive language skills – the child can record their
description of the animations and play it back

Ratings and Reviews
I loved the language universe and upgraded to a bundle expecting the same format for this app. No audio renders this useless for audio therapy for my cochlear implant training.

Thanks for the review - not sure why you're not getting Audio but the game does have audio! Please contact us directly on email@example.com and we'll help you sort this out. Best wishes, The Speech and Language Store
Lots of Fun to Learn!
If you need help teaching action words, Actions With Splingo is a great tool that students will enjoy using! Featuring animated antics from sweetly rendered aliens demonstrating targeted verbs, kids will immediately be hooked into learning and in increasing their comprehension skills. The app breaks down the included verbs into easy, medium and difficult levels of play, based on a learning hierarchy. The user may select all verbs or can choose only selected verbs to target during a practice session. Games can be saved for future continuation. A very useful recording feature is included, where students can create audio recordings of their own uses of the targeted verbs. This is great for building expressive language skills, grammar, and for fostering conversational carry-over skills for speech related goals. The app includes both British and American English versions. The narrator voice is well modulated and is not robotic. Suggestions for future updates: Enable data tracking. and multiple user capability. The medium difficulty level words do not appear under the selection tab, so the user cannot see them until game play. This app is a great value!
I have had the app for tow days. It keeps crashing,i.e.,the app stops showing the picture after 7-8 responses. Very frustrating. Please can you fix this app. My clients love the graphics, when they can see them.
