Learning a new language is probably the toughest course in your school curriculum. You have to start from base zero learning alphabets and words to get acquainted with the basic structure of the language. You not only have to spell them correctly but the phonetics also needs to be correct to finally be able to communicate in that particular medium. But have you ever noticed that you learn your mother tongue very easily and early in your age but learning another language in the later years is not that simple. The crux lies not in the fact that you’re learning your mothertongue. In fact, you can learn any language with much ease during your childhood days. Your learning ability is much more and there’s enormous scope for grasping new words. In short, your power to learn new words is much higher. There’s just one condition: it needs to be fun.
You need not see anywhere else as we’ve got this iOS app for you called ABC Galaxy that has been developed by Studycat Limited. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
In the world of ABC Galaxy, there is limitless scope for learning new alphabet and words. You just have to let your child jump at this opportunity and soon he’ll be immersed in a pool of vocabulary. But the biggest achievement of the developers is to have envisaged and developed so many interactive sessions that never make your child feel the pressure of learning. You don’t have to tell him he’s visiting a school; you’re just taking him to a playground and that’s where all the educational activities take place.
Counting to a total of 58 levels of gameplay, the challenges ask your child to shoot at different objects without defying the gravity. So while you’re in a virtual space, you’ll always feel the downward pull. To add to your challenge, there are many different obstacles placed in your path that you have to avoid or move in order to advance to victory. When you hit an object, you hear the name of the object as well as get to see its notation. Some words are highlighted for emphasis. So overall, once your child is playing this game, he’ll shortly start recognizing the correct sound and spelling of words.
Young children are always fascinated and inspired by visuals the most. The developers have acknowledged this very fact in this app where they have used ample bright colours alongside delightful sounds and smooth animations that send a cheerful message across the screen and a smile on your baby’s face will reflect that.
The app comes in two versions. While the free version gives you access to 10 one-player levels, 4 two-player levels (in case I forgot to mention, there are multiplayer levels as well), 42 illustrated vocabulary words and upper and lower case letters from A-F, the paid version has 56 levels in total supported by a huge vocabulary of 208 words. It’s available for $4.99. It’s almost like getting your child admitted into a Play School.
Pros: bright colourful graphics; chirpy sounds; 58 levels; multiplayer; learn alphabet and new words; free version available.
I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
