The app’s unique
language learning features
Key words are the first words young children learn when they’re starting to communicate – the words for things in their world that they can understand. With a strong foundation of key words, your child will begin to understand other words used around them, word patterns and eventually grammar systems.
But children need to hear key words up to 20 times to remember them. This is where an app comes in handy. Little Chatterbox uses repetition and games to reinforce learning. The games test children’s knowledge, turning passive learning into active usage, helping anchor memories. The games are also a subtle way of repeating words, again and again and again.
of older children
When children are learning new words, they benefit hugely from being able to see someone’s mouth moving as they form the words. Speech voice divorced from a face is much harder to comprehend – that’s why it’s so difficult to speak on the phone in a foreign language.
Little Chatterbox uses videos of older children saying each word. By watching these native speakers as they enunciate, your child will pick up vital cues to help them pronounce new words confidently.
Watch how two children enunciate words differently, and how the lip movement gives us cues.
Choose bilingual or
If you have a very young child who is learning two languages simultaneously, Little Chatterbox’s bilingual setting will reinforce both languages and show them how one object can have two names.
Older children (aged 3+) who already have a good understanding of their main language can use Little Chatterbox in its monolingual setting, to focus on the new language they’re learning.
to learn faster
Children learn new words faster when they practice saying them out loud, rather than just hearing them. So, by using Little Chatterbox together with your child and encouraging them to say the words themselves, you’ll speed their confidence. A little praise goes a long way too!
