Key Verbs with Steffy & James

By Language And Learning Steps Pty.Ltd

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Key Verbs with Steffy and James is a simple, fun, interactive action app, designed to teach a range of verbs using a predictable format of present tense command, followed by descriptions in present, and then past tense. This language app in the Key Word Kids series, follows the Key Word Kids Steffy and James as they join family and friends to demonstrate these actions using either:  a ‘Learn’ mode where children choose a figure from a set of 3, watch the character perform a command and hear the action described in both the present continuous and past tense; or a ‘Test’ mode which shows the action and gives the present tense but stops the game to allow users to say the action completed, using their past tense form. As with all Language and Learning Steps apps, children are both engaged and learning, with delightful, colourful characters and sound effects, and a selection of short motivating mini games included as brain breaks. Customised options include turning text, voice or background noise on or off.

○ Three sets of actions in each verb set and three verb sets in each cycle
○ Pause button displayed on screen allows the user to change mode easily, skip a current verb set or return to the home screen
○ Learn mode requires the user to choose one of three available actions and then runs through the verb states without the test screen
○ Test mode requires the user to choose one of three available actions and pauses after the description in the present tense, to ask what the figure did, aiming to test past tense verbs
○ Teaches and tests both regular and irregular past tense verbs
○ Teaches personal pronouns ‘he’, ‘she’ and ‘it’ by using the correct pronoun to describe the past tense action
○ Teaches concepts
○ Customised for a range of ages (1year old learning concepts and vocabulary for actions, but suitable for older children learning past tense)
