PBS has been known for their educational programing for kids. I remember watching their shows when I was a kid and had my children watching also. With the advancements in technology PBS has taken their characters from the television to the iOS and now offer several great educational apps for kids of many ages. The newest app “Spanish” helps kids learn and understand a new language.
|Kids can now learn spanish with the PBS KIDS spanish app. LITTLE PIM SPANISH is based on LITTLE PIM, an award-winning foreign-language teaching DVD series. The app helps young children develop basic Spanish vocabulary through three interactive games: “Eating and Drinking,” “Playtime” and “Wake up Smiling.” With three levels of play in each game, the app introduces a total of 60 vocabulary words, including nouns, verbs and short phrases. At each level, the game presents vocabulary words and phrases both visually and aurally, then provides activities that help players acquire the vocabulary, and lastly validates and reinforces newly acquired knowledge.|
