5. Spanish Learning For Kids from Marlu Studio – This app is free for some subjects, but to access all of the topics, you will have to pay to upgrade the app. One of the free activities is coloring. They are shown a picture to color and the Spanish word for the picture is spoken. Each time they change the color they are using, the Spanish name for the color is said. There is a teaching section where they learn vocabulary by popping balloons, and a puzzle section where they have to put the item in the correct place and then the Spanish word is spoken. The final activity is a game where they have to touch the correct picture for the vocabulary word that is spoken. It offers a lot of variety in learning options and plenty if repetition with vocabulary.
4. Learn Spanish for Beginners by Zeemish Studios – Free with the option to upgrade to a pro version for a fee. You receive the first 4 classes free. Each class is full of vocabulary lists to study. The words are spoken and shown on the screen. You can practice each list as often as you want and then take a multiple choice quiz. There are a lot of vocabulary words covered in the free version.
3. Learn Languages: Rosetta Stone – This is a great app that really helps you learn. Lesson 1 is free, in order to access the rest of the app, you have to purchase it. This is not a “fun” app like the rest on the list, but even going through the first lesson will help your child master some vocabulary and grammar.
2. Spanish School Bus for Kids – This is a fun app that is great for kids through 6th grade, (I think older kids who are new to Spanish will enjoy it too). It has colorful games and videos that will engage kids in learning. If you subscribe to the Chungaboo mailing list you will receive printable Spanish flash cards to help your learning continue when offline.
1. DuoLingo – English speakers can learn French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish with DuoLingo. It is a completely free learning app and I feel it is one of the best on the list. It teaches grammar and vocabulary and has the student translating sentences and writing in Spanish in the first lesson. While other apps may focus on only vocabulary, this one focuses on teaching the entire language. This one is for those who are able to easily read and spell basic words in English. Like the Rosetta Stone app, it is missing the fun and games that some of the other apps have, but it makes up for it in the amount of learning.
I hope that your kids have fun learning Spanish with different apps! Is there one you like that is not on the list? Please tell us about it in the comments.
