I am a compensated Little Pim ambassador. All opinions are my own.
When most people think of Little Pim, they think of DVD's. But did you know that Little Pim has apps you can use on the go and two of them are free?
1. Little Pim for iPad
Little Pim recently released a new app for the iPad only which comes in three different languages, Spanish, French and Chinese. Above is a picture from the French version which we used and it really is fun!
The method at each game level is to first demonstrate the vocabulary word or phrase both visually and aurally, then to help the player acquire the vocabulary, and lastly to validate and reinforce the newly acquired knowledge. Animation and interactivity help provide context in this immersive language learning experience. The app introduces a total of 60 French words and phrases and really is very fun for kids. Mary has been playing it since I downloaded it and she really has learned a lot from it already in such a short time. The app costs $2.99 in the iTunes store.
This fun app is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, plus you can choice a lot of different languages! Mary instantly saw they had Hebrew available and picked that one since we're Jewish. Basically you can color different pictures in each language, but you can hear Little Pim speak the words.
Mary loved the fact that you could color Little Pim himself in this one. So she proudly colored him blue and yellow so he wouldn't look so sad anymore! This app is free in iTunes.
In Little Pim Word Bag, you can choose either French or Spanish and what types of words you want to learn. Either eating and drinking, wake up smiling, or playtime. Kids will learn a total of 27 vocabulary words in either language.
This app is almost like an interactive flash card in the sense that when the child picks the word they want to learn, a new screen comes up with the word and a picture of it. Plus this app enables smarTots which lets parents track their child's progress with an account they make. This app is free in iTunes.
So if you're wanting to teach your child a second language, try Little Pim. It's the #1 early language learning program and it's won 25 awards so you know it's amazing!
