Foreign Language for Infants and Children? There’s an App for That

Learning a foreign language just got easier with the Early Lingo app for
children aged 0-9 years. The popular DVD series and learning system
teaching six languages is now available online so children anywhere in
the world can play and discover.

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#foreignlanguage–Early Lingo, Inc., the award-winning foreign language learning system
for infants and children aged 0-9 years, released its next generation
language-learning app in iTunes. The teaching application is complete
with interactive games and lessons, original videos, workbooks and
flashcards making it fun to learn Spanish, French, Italian, Mandarin
Chinese, German and English.

Studies show children who are bilingual or multilingual perform better
in other academic areas. These children statistically earn higher SAT
scores, show significant gains in IQ performance, and exhibit advanced
mental flexibility. The new app helps children learn more than 450
foreign words and phrases through interactive games and lessons
featuring native speakers, high definition animation and a written test
feature unique to Early Lingo.

“Children today are more tech savvy than previous generations,” said
Caryn Antonini, Founder and CEO of Early Lingo and graduate of the
Georgetown University School of Languages and Linguistics. “The Early
Lingo online app is not just a game, it is a comprehensive next
generation learning system in foreign language and its relationship to
cognitive development.”

In addition to the new app for families with young children, Early Lingo
works with schools and communities to raise awareness about the
importance of learning foreign languages. The company recently partnered
with the Los Angeles Police Activities League (PAL) and area chapters of
the youth crime prevention program to teach Chinese and French to
children in the community. Gaining even basic foreign language skills
gives low income, underprivileged youth the opportunity to develop
communication, active listening and cultural competency skills—valuable
for the 21st century.

“Our mission from day one has been to enrich and enhance the lives of
children and their families,” Antonini said. “There is no limit to the
number of languages a child can learn and I am proud we can now offer
young learners around the world all of the language resources they need
through our innovative new app.”
