Last year, I created an app Word Play and Learn with my daughter (then 4) to help my son (then 2 years) learn about the world around him. Its a simple (fun and interactive) app to help encourage speech development with children or adults in English and French.

— How does it work ? —
Touch a photo and a real voice (Child or Adult in English or French) says what it is. There are sound effects together with a wide range of #free categories to choose from, no adverts, and works offline.
It also includes a memory game (Play) where a random photo is shown asking the player to remember it and select the answer from the others.
Last week – my daughter (5 years), for school, needed to learn how to tell the time – so I added “How to tell the time”, and while I was there – added “All shapes and sizes” and “At the beach” to make 17x categories!
When creating “tell the time” My daughter was suddenly really good at reading the clock faces – when asked – she told me her secret – “I just read the words under the picture – daddy” – made me smile! It now shows the written time when it is said and not before!

Another success story was
The other week – I added french (adult) and was blown away when I showed my daughter (now 5 years) just once and when randomly asked what’s the french for “butterfly” – she replied instantly with “papillon”. She only half played with it for 2 mins! Made my day!
