"There are a plethora of spelling and keyboarding apps out there, and developer Perception Technologies, S.L. throws its hat in the ring with Dic-Dic. Multilingual dictation to practise spelling, writing, and sound-letter matching. With three levels of difficulty and four different languages, this app is a fun way to explore English and learn other languages."
"Overall, this is a great little spelling, keyboarding, and language app all rolled into one. It's super easy to use and supports basic spelling skills in four languages." Fun Educational Apps
"Dic-Dic is an excellent value for students or children who are learning beginning reading/spelling/phonics skills and for students who would like a gentle, low-key introduction to Spanish or French. The app’s ability to grow with the user is a real plus." Bestappsforkids.com
" I like how each language has three separate difficulty levels, because my preschooler may be a fluent reader/speller in her native English language, but has little to no background in any other languages. So it’s nice to have the option for clues/correction depending on the user’s needs as well as the different skills levels." Appymall.com
"Dic-Dic. Multilingual dictation to practice spelling, writing and sound-letter matching is such a great learning tool! In addition to spelling and keyboard experience, it give kids the opportunity to explore other languages in a fun and relaxed atmosphere!" Bestappsforkids.org
DIC-DIC is the perfect educational game to learn to spell commonly-used words in several languages. The audiovisual dictation at 3 levels of difficulty lets boys and girls from 3 to 8 years of age learn spelling and vocabulary in a fun way.
The game is designed both for practising the first language and to acquire vocabulary and spelling knowledge in a foreign language.
This is a 100% safe application, with no advertising or in-app selling, simple and intuitive to use, so that your children can play completely independently and safely.
The game lets the user choose the level of difficulty they want at any time, what language they want to practise and whether or not have clues. The clues allow the youngest children to reinforce their learning of letters in association with their sound.
One of the special features of this application is the use of the keyboard to enter the letters, an option which is not common in applications of this kind and which enables users to become familiar with this tool.
The application includes an extra game to reward good players. This comes up when they achieve a certain number of right answers.
The application also features albums of scores, making it possible to monitor success achieved at each level in each language.

What's New in Version 1.4.2
We have fixed the bug that prevented select the language of the game.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Repetitive in the right way
Learning a language requires repetition, and this app provides what is needed to learn. Hearing, seeing and writing the words, as well as a visual of the meaning of the word are all included. This app is meant for young learners--the graphics reflect a young child in mind during development, but don't let that keep you from considering this app for an older learner new to the language. This will provide the practice needed to learn a language.
This wonderful app is like no other app that I have seen! This is a great app for our English Language Learners! The different levels are perfect for our varied students. Using this app is so easy, just open the app and go! Students can practice their keyboarding while increasing their vocabulary. It is so easy to understand exactly what to do!
OK Spelling App
App was easy to understand but kids were bored quickly. Very hard these days to keep their interest. We did like changing languages. However, when in Russian, or the last language option, we got all of the words incorrect because we don't have the Russian alphabet on our keyboard, just Spanish and English.
