A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn lots of new words and phrases in English. They'll also practice using their new vocabulary in sentences. Audio and text help kids learn how a word sounds and how it looks.
Ease of Play
Play is mostly straightforward, though there is a bit of setup involved, and navigation could be smoother.
Products & Purchases
A small icon on the main screen advertises other apps from the same developer. After tapping the icon, users must enter their birth year to confirm age before they are taken to the app store.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
English language learning is front and center with this adaptable collection of customizable flash cards. Though the flash card setup isn't exactly exciting, it's nice to see more than just a simple collection of isolated vocabulary words. Themed groupings include the usual suspects like colors or simple foods, as well as words that don't make their way into language learning apps as often (dragon fruit, anyone?). Then there are the phrases, pronouns, and other important building blocks that someone needs to know to be able to functionally speak a language. Beyond the flash card introduction and review, kids also see the new words or phrases used in sentences, so they can experience the new material in context. Everything -- including word groups, flash cards, and difficulty levels -- is customizable, though it does get a little complicated navigating through it all. Parents and kids can also easily use the material that comes pre-loaded in the app. The major thing missing in EASY peasy: English for Kids is the element of fun. Though the presentation is clean and graphics are kid-friendly, using the app could be a bit more playful and engaging.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
