Multilingual Apps

Although many apps support multiple languages (accessible in your device's settings), far fewer support more than one language within the app itself. So if you're looking for a way to boost your kids' exposure to other languages, these titles should fit the bill. From open exploration for preschoolers to math practice for grade schoolers, these apps allow easy toggling among languages and more linguistic flexibility.
