[prMac.com] Tokyo, Japan - Announcing that JHE - Jerry's Home English, the developers of JoyTots Kindergarten 1, has released the latest app in their English learning line. Teaching with a combination of written words, phonics and game playing, the app exceeds kindergarten English learning curriculum, and is the next step up from the developer's JoyTots PreSchool app. This application is more complete compared to other similar English educational games and is tested and used in an actual school environment.
The developer earlier released a beginner's app for preschoolers and adults that serves to introduce users to the fundamentals. JoyTots Kindergarten 1 is the next stage in JHE's line up of products for the learning of Basic English. JoyTots Kindergarten 1 is designed for anyone five years old and up. The app works for children and adults alike and, when done together, is often a bonding experience between parent and child.
This app was designed by a team of professional teachers led by international school principal and owner, Jerry Hanus. Mr. Hanus has fifteen years of experience teaching English to Japanese children, so he knew what was necessary to provide the ultimate learning opportunity for young children, as well as adults just beginning to learn English. In fact, his techniques are being used and tested in classrooms.
