10 Apps to Help Teach Your Kid a Foreign Language

By Leticia Barr |

Learning a new language isn’t always easy, but with repeated practice and exposure through a variety of different methods — like these foreign language learning apps — parents can help foster bilingualism.

These days there really is an app for everything — and every language! — but the best ones are always: easy to use, feature native speakers so kids can hear the correct pronunciation of words, and engage through interactive content that reinforces what is being learned at school, after-school clubs, and language classes.

Sign Language: Fun Learning for Kids by Handcrafted Web Solutions

What it is: Experienced sign language instructor, Rachel Briley, teaches kids a range of signs, including proper American Sign Language for letters, numbers, animals, family members, transportation modes, nature scenes, and salutations through the Sign Language: Fun Learning for Kids app, featuring high definition video.

 

Why we like it: Briley’s 20 years of experience working with kids shines through this app as she teaches them how to sign through popular songs like "The Wheels on the Bus," "5 Little Monkeys," and "Itsy Bitsy Spider." She also teaches them how to combine facial expressions with signs to ask questions.

 

Why it works: Briley makes learning sign language engaging and fun thanks to the video component — that really is key for teaching young ages American Sign Language.

 

Download it here: Sign Language: Fun Learning for Kids is available for iOS devices through the iTunes Store for $4.99.
