The best time to learn a new language is not when you are an adult, or even when you are in high school. The best time is in elementary school. Motlie’s Vocabulary Trainer Spanish 1- Shapes, Numbers, and Colors is a new app that provides both single word vocabulary training and vocabulary in sentences. It is a well-organized alternative to boring drills for reinforcing basic Spanish vocabulary and concepts for children over age 8.

Motlie’s Vocabulary Trainer Spanish 1- Shapes, Numbers, and Colors was developed by JustKidsApps; it is available for all IOS devices (including iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch). The app presents 200 Spanish words that are divided into levels that get progressively more difficult. Disclosure: Because I do not speak Spanish, I cannot comment on the accuracy of the Spanish content. This review will focus on the app design and its user interface.
First, it is important to create a profile for your child, complete with a cartoon avatar; this profile will be used to chart progress. The first activity is called “Learn the Vocabulary,” a page that introduces 10-20 new words in an untimed format. All the words belong to the same category, including colors, numbers, adjectives, nouns, or verbs. Both the spelling and the pronunciation of the Spanish words are provided in this section. This is followed by four fast-paced games that reinforce the vocabulary and test your child’s memory. They include:
- Pair Match, matching a picture or number with the word
- Water race, a Beat-the-Clock type game to select the correct answer from three choices
- Listen Carefully, a listen and choose game
- Text Chaos, a matching game in which you match the Spanish and English words.
High scores are saved, and it is possible to track progress through each level.
What Fun Educational Apps liked-
Experts know that the best way to learn new vocabulary is to hear the word and see it in written form. Motlie’s Vocabulary Trainer Spanish 1- Shapes, Numbers, and Colors has a colorful, age appropriate design that is easy to understand and easy to follow. The categories are also sequenced correctly, with colors and shapes presented first, and verbs and adjectives presented later.
Children who are learning Spanish can use this app to reinforce their classroom work; the practice it provides will give them an advantage in school. With the abundance of Spanish language classes being offered in schools, there is a significant need to apply technology to improve second language instruction.
