Lingo's Market

The Language Playground
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Bring this app with you shopping and turn your visit to the grocery store into a multi-lingual learning experience! Come shop in a grocery store with Lingo the Dragon and hear your child laugh while learning how to spell and recognize over 100 food items in French, English, Spanish and Mandarin! 

Lingo teaches your child vocabulary and word recognition as he eats his way through the market. Your child has the ability to push Lingo’s shopping cart through the grocery store, choose what foods he eats and pick which of the seven aisles he rolls down. When a food item is selected from the shelf, the word is pronounced in the language of your choice and displayed on the cash register. Your child feeds Lingo and watches him munch up many different kinds of items found in your grocery store.  You can control how your child views the words by choosing between uppercase, lowercase or mixed letters (in English), Mandarin (Chinese characters or pinyin), Spanish or French. 

Through this playful, multi-sensory shopping experience, children will be entertained and engaged in bilingual learning time and time again. Ideal for kids who find flashcards dull.
