About the Apps
The App Store is chock-full of Spanish learning apps for all levels and age groups, and there are lots of great choices to tempt any searcher into hours of gridlock. Luck for you, we are always looking for the cream of the crop and our freshest picks will truly engage your young learner into Spanish.
Here is why these five are the best of the bunch.
One app truly rises to the top above all other apps in this category: Little Pim Spanish. This app truly offers kids an immersive, authentic, and interactive Spanish learning experience. Created by PBS, the content is educationally sound and the gameplay is bound to keep kids coming back for more!
There are lots of flash card choices for learning Spanish, but the following two are some of the very best for early learners: Spanish Baby Flash Cards and Wordzine. Both of these apps offer unique styles of presenting Spanish vocabulary. They are each highly engaging. The thing that sticks out the most is the quality of visuals these apps use coupled with clear and easy to understand Spanish pronunciations.
Another app that falls under the flashcard realm is Learn Spanish For Kids: Bilingual Child. This app did offer some nice interactive gameplay for kids, and a way for parent to monitor progress. One major drawback, however, is that you have to pay for content packs within the app. The free content is great, but the full package will cost you close to $6.00.
Interactive books are all over the App Store, but we found one that will help your kid go from speaking Spanglish to Spanish in no time: Learn Spanish: Little Blue Jackal - by Niyaa. This app uses a tiered gradual learning approach to help ease your child into Spanish, or meet them at their current ability with the language. The app is fun, engaging, and highly interactive!
