A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn how to say common words in English. They'll see a picture of the word and hear its English name and then practice matching the pictures to names from memory. Kids may end up remembering the new words, but the app's dry approach may cause some kids to quit.
Ease of Play
Kids easily tap their way through new vocabulary and simple memory games.

Is It Any Good?
Fun graphics and clear audio nicely present new vocabulary, but the dry, repetitive format lacks inspiration. With 16 native language choices, and the option to choose between American and British accents, Learn English for Toddlers and Kids lends itself to the needs of many different families. Also the overall presentation is very kid-friendly with simple navigation, positive encouragement, and cute visuals. Yet the app's approach to introducing vocabulary feels like just a fancy digital version of static flash cards that could just as easily be on paper. It's nice that the memory games adapt to kids' performances, but neither the games themselves nor the way they get more challenging is all that exciting. Learn English for Toddlers and Kids has some things going for it, but it needs work to be a truly stellar language-learning app for little kids.
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.
