What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is a safe, stimulating place for kids to learn the basics of Spanish -- without even realizing they are. In a kid-friendly animated world, kids can interact with cute characters and play engaging language games and activities. Touted as a private, in-home tutor, this site teaches Spanish based on a “playful immersion” approach developed for kids 3-7. Lessons, games, and activities are customized to your child’s level and adapt as your child learns more Spanish and becomes more fluent. Parents are an important part of the process and receive regular progress reports that provide insight into their child’s development.

Is it any good?

GoGo Lingo was created by a team of experts to help kids between the age of 3 and 7 learn basic Spanish skills online and at their own pace. The online learning environment is essentially a kid-friendly town -- called Lingoland -- where users play a variety of fun, engaging games in order to help Little Lingo, a friendly, animated character. As kids progress through the games and learn Spanish words through pictures and sounds, they earn stars they can use as currency to “purchase” virtual items on the site. Comprehensive instruction is available with the paid premium membership, which adapts to your child’s level and becomes progressively more challenging based on how well your child learns the language concepts. The parents’ dashboard provides parents with the chance to receive regular updates via email, follow their child’s progress and access information and links to help extend learning away from the computer. When kids are exploring Lingoland, they’ll be having so much fun they may not even realize they’re being taught a new language at the same time.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • The importance of learning about the many types of people, languages and cultures that are all over the world.

  • Why it is often easier to learn new skills, such as speaking a foreign language or spelling, through games and activities rather than straight memorization? How do games help us learn? In what ways does a game make learning more fun?

  • How the computer and the Internet can open up a world of learning opportunities for kids, from language to geography to history. What does it mean to use these digital tools responsibly?
