[prMac.com] Madrid, Spain - Today Monkimun, an award-winning app studio, announced Monki Birthday Party, its fourth offering in the Monki line. Monki Birthday Party is the fourth app released by Monkimun, whose products bridge the gap between fun and education. This achievement is a particular issue in the language-learning apps for the kids industry. Most apps are either fun or educational but not both. Monki Birthday Party, on the other hand, is fun and at the same time it teaches kids a language in a natural and intuitive manner.
* Main purpose is to introduce the sounds of a second language
* English, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese
* App melds fun and education in a unique and lively manner
* Monki Birthday Party will have kids blowing out birthday candles on their screens
The app can be used to reinforce a child's mother tongue or to introduce the sounds and structure of a second language; a very important step in being able to speak it fluently.
Monkimun's VP of Product, Marieta Viedma, says, "Science has shown that even at a very young age children's brains are highly receptive to communication. The more words they hear the better. We can help them and enhance the learning process by introducing familiar objects, colors and movement. With our apps kids learn without even knowing it."
Monki Birthday Party consists of four mini-games related to birthday parties. The games are: preparing party decorations, eating a birthday cake, choosing party hats and opening a piata. One of the highlights of this app is the innovative interaction such as blowing on the screen to make the birthday cake candles go out or shaking the tablet to swing the piata. Kids will learn new words such as numbers, shapes, colours and how to form simple sentences.
