[prMac.com] West Orange, New Jersey - One Family, Four Languages. Elena is trilingual, fluent in English, Spanish, and French and has taken on Chinese with her parents on Saturdays. Pablo, despite his age, is also on his way to being quadrilingual along with the rest of his family. Franck and Cristina believe that language is more than just words that we speak, but also a door to greater opportunities, stronger and more meaningful relationships with people, and ultimately a more peaceful world, so it's little surprise that they feel compelled to encourage multilingualism in their family.
How do they do it? Franck and Cristina propose that making 10 minutes count is all it takes to have fun while inspiring kids to become multilingual. Reading, singing, playing, cooking,... spending 10 minutes doing fun activities with your child in another language. That's where Princesses Learn Spanish can also help.
Princesses Learn Spanish is an application that allows children to use the technology of an iPad or iPhone to engage in early language learning that is not just educational, but loads of fun as well. The app teaches Spanish through stories, games, songs and flashcards. Set around a classic fairytale theme utilizing the timeless stories of Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty, kids are encouraged to enter a magical kingdom with a princess as their guide. Set to a background of inspiring classical music, the app engages children in word-image association, word / expression repetition, and learn-through-play experiences - all proven language learning strategies.
Will the application be successful in inspiring preschoolers to learn Spanish? Franck and Cristina, experts in their own right, think a well-designed app can make it fun for children to start learning. All children need is for someone to open the door. Franck and Cristina feel privileged to have the opportunity to do just that.
