A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn useful words and phrases in Spanish through consistent, frequent practice. Vocabulary is presented in flash card form and in context through sample dialogue. Practice lets kids interact with Spanish in a number of ways including listening, speaking, and reading. Kids can customize what they do, and progress is saved and new material presented accordingly. Learning is mostly self-directed and requires a real commitment to practicing the material.
Ease of Play
Though there's an introductory tutorial and a help button, there's a lot of material and ways to interact with the app. It can take some time to get familiar with how to navigate.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some of the vocabulary available to learn is about relationships with mildly sexual content such as "Can I kiss you?"

Is It Any Good?
Language learners embark on an automatically personalized, yet customizable, journey to proficiency. Learn to Speak Spanish With MosaLingua presents relevant, high-interest, practical vocabulary and phrases in multiple modalities: read, hear, say, spell, and recall. The 360-degree approach extends beyond the app, too, with blogs, videos, and more. In fact there's so much, both in the app and on the web, that it can be unwieldy to navigate it all. What's more, the app's support material is a bit text-heavy and may not appeal to all learners. Though it's unclear how valid the scientific claims about the strategically timed review notifications are, it certainly can't hurt to practice in short, consistent, and frequent sessions. For those who take the time to learn the ropes of the app's features, make a commitment to following the program, and are motivated to combine the app with additional offscreen practice opportunities, it has the potential to be a powerful tool.
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.
