Forvo Kids is a children’s application aimed at 3 to 6-year olds and designed to teach English using vocabulary games.
• 10 different topics: numbers, body, animals, colours, school, clothes, food, shapes, toys, and household objects
• More than 135 basic words which children can play with
• Simple to use and fully adapted to children
• Evaluation of content learned by the child
The application includes 10 different topics, with specific vocabulary for each topic and is based on the Doman method, developed by the prestigious doctor and psychotherapist Glenn Doman.
This method aims to help children retain new knowledge by showing them “bits of intelligence” (flashcards with simple vocabulary) with visual and auditory information. Basic information units combined with simple games are presented to the child in each subject area. The information units seek to capture their attention and require the use of various senses through, for example, visual and auditory stimulation, while the proposed activities seek to reinforce and evaluate the knowledge acquired by the child.
The results of the evaluation are shown in the form of stars, from one to three, with one star being a minimum knowledge acquirement and three stars being a high knowledge acquirement.
All the images and associated typography are adapted to stimulate children’s cognitive processes and familiarise them with the materials used by schools. Their intuitive and simple design guarantees their use and comprehension by the child.
And all guaranteed by Forvo, the world's largest pronunciation guide for language learning.
Ratings and Reviews
American English not included
I am trying to teach my daughter English, but we live in the USA. I am very disappointed that this app does not include the choice to use American English instead of British English. For this reason we cannot use the app. It would not be very difficult for them to have an American speak all of these vocabulary words and create an American English version of this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
