Toddler Spanish. Teach Your Little One Spanish with this Early Language Learning App
Dec 22, 2011 12:49 PM –
Toddler Spanish is a cute and brightly colored language-tutor app aimed at toddlers! It’s adorably sweet and comes with big pictures and a nice range of vocabulary. I felt the app itself was a little limited in that it only featured a random list of nouns, but it’s very well designed and works beautifully.
Tested on: HTC Desire HD
Pros & Cons:
- Beautiful design!
- Pressing the picture invokes audio pronunciation!
- Training schemes with the Toddler Learning Engine.
- Only nouns: doll, balloon, crayons rather than ‘hello’, ‘goodbye’, ‘please’, ‘thank you’, etc.
Toddler Spanish is a cute and well developed means to help your little one learn Spanish words. There’s about 100 different words contained in the app, plenty for your toddler to learn through the app. Word pop-up flashcard-style and you can choose whether the words are randomly presented or fixed.
There’s a smart learning tool contained within the app called the ‘Toddler Learning Engine’. This lets you build up the number of words (content of the app) gradually, so you don’t overwhelm your baby with too much. You can set the app to display 10, 20 or 30 words initially and introduce between 1 and 4 new flashcards every session, day or week. I personally thought this was a great tool for helping kids learn new words and it’s clear there’s been some careful thought put into this feature.
App usage itself is a series of brightly colored flashcards, with the Spanish spelling of the item at the bottom. When you press the picture the audio pronunciation is spoken. The spoken words are quite clear and ideal for kids to play with and repeat back. The photos themselves are incredibly rich and high resolution, so there’s no doubt as to what the word actually is.
I was a little dismayed to see there were only nouns in the app. A solid comprehension of the app content will allow your child to know words like ‘saxophone’ and ‘pencils’, but not ‘hello’, ‘thank you’ or how to count. It perhaps would have been better (only my opinion, I’m no language expert!!) to have less items and maybe some numbers and key phrases.

Toddler Spanish is perhaps a great starting point for introducing your baby to the Spanish language. It is relatively limited, but it perhaps gives a fundamental starting block to further language learning.
Ease of Use:
Designed for toddlers, principal usage is incredibly easy; touch the picture to hear the audio and swipe the page to move to the next picture. There is a menu for grown ups to navigate and tweak the Toddler Learning Engine. This though is very simple too and straightforward to use.
The clever inclusion of the Toddler Learning Engine means you can build up introduced words over weeks, so perhaps it’s something a toddler would use on a daily basis, maybe a few words at a time. The app only contains around 100 words so once these have learned them it might become redundant.
The interface is very vivid and well designed. More than suitable for the discerning attention of toddler-kind, it’s a great learning platform that is easy to adapt to and lots of fun.
