Welcome to “Italian First Words with Phonics“ the first educational application to teach children Italian through letter sounds (phonics) and letter names. Your child will start off by learning the sounds of letters through phonics and how these associate to specific words. As your child’s understanding of the sounds and names broadens your child will move on to learn the names of the letters and how they are used to form words, learning spelling at the same time. The three different hint alternatives (color hints, letter hints and color and letter hints) combined with five more settings, will challenge your child and adjust the level of difficult. The unique interface, featuring a list of thumbnails, allows your child to explore all the words and will offer endless hours of fun and education.

Featured by Apple on What's Hot for the iPhone on the US and Italian App Stores in two categories Games/Educational and Games/Kids!!!

Good app

mi marido

I like it but I preferred the other options can downloaded for the same price

Does not work after least update


After the latest update the app stopped working. A white screen with a toybox and the text anlock pops up and then it jumps to the iOS main screen. Before the update I would have rated it a 4 star.
