Language-learning app for preschoolers
Make language come to life!
This intuitive and colorful app for preschoolers is easy to understand through the combination of image and sound. Educational studies have shown that children of a young age are highly receptive to language learning and articulative expression. With LinguPinguin, curious children encounter a playful approach to learning foreign languages.
The features of the full version of LinguPinguin are:
Nine different visual worlds and a total of ninety funny objects are made
available to explore. When tapped, each object comes to life with hilarious animated movements and sounds revealing the spoken word for the object in the native tongue or chosen foreign language. A creative language-learning adventure!
The nine different themes in the full version are: animals, transportation, food, body, farm, toys, nature, clothes, and apartment.
The appealing illustrations and quality animation offered in this app were executed by a team of professional animation and design experts. Even for adult travelers, tourists or anyone interested in languages, LinguPingu is an amusing tool to get in touch with a foreign language.

"There aren’t many foreign language teaching apps out there and LinguPinguin is extremely well developed. Nice animations, cute illustrations, really simple and easy to use. And the LinguPingu series comes in several different language options." [iphone4kids.net 08/2011]

Ratings and Reviews
Tells it in English only!
I was looking for a fun app from my kids to learn Mandarin. The app actually is very cute and interactive. I like how it has lots of different scenes and that the kids can tap each image. It's also nice that the image moves when it is touched. However, when my child touched each image only the English pronunciation is given. This defeats the purpose of my child trying to learn Mandarin went only English is given. I'm not sure if this is an English learning app but I thought it was supposed to teach Mandarin.
Strengths and Weaknesses
My family really likes this app. We particularly like the equal importance you place on both languages. We also like the audio quality and the awesome selection of scenes. But we think you could improve the app by including characters/words. Do that, we'll up our rating!
I just brought the full app, but there is no sound!
