Is It Any Good?

Learn French by Mindsnacks is great. It's visually appealing, featuring cute animal characters and easy-to-play games. The games offer good challenges that test a variety of skills, from image recognition to spelling to rapid recall. It's strong from a learning perspective, too: Users are rewarded both for trying many lessons and for revisiting the same vocabulary. Kids gain experience points by playing all the games, and additional points unlock even more games and earn badges.

Although these badges and games are good motivators, more qualitative data about each kid's progress is tracked as well, and it's easy to get an at-a-glance sense of the words, phrases, and skills that they've developed over time. This app strikes a great balance between silly fun and serious learning. Although users won't gain full knowledge of reading or speaking French from this app, Learn French would be great as an introduction or as supplement to an in-person language course.

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.
