Language acquisition is so much easier for young children. It's been proven that teaching toddlers and preschoolers a second language is significantly easier than teaching adults. Juana la Iguana en la Granja is a great app to introduce and immerse your child in the Spanish language.
iOS app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
Juana la Iguana en la Granja by ATA IGUANA PRODUCCIONES C.A. is a preschool app for children who speak or are learning Spanish. Join Juana the Iguana as she plays and practices basic skills on the farm. This app provides children a place to practice basic skills completely in Spanish. Five different activities teach children about fruit, counting, colors, animals, and matching. Each game is easy to play, even if the user hasn't mastered the Spanish language.

How the App Works-
This app is a full immersion in Spanish. Children follow Juana's Spanish instructions and listen to her Spanish reinforcements and rewards. Juana's instructions are written and spoken, providing even more support to Spanish language learners.
Each activity is easy to play and focuses on a basic skill. Users begin by helping Juana sort fruit of a specific color. Juana requests the fruit and identifies each as it is selected. Next, meet Juana's friends in a matching game. Each friend or animal is identified and the beginning letter named as they are found.
The third activity asks players to sort and give three stars to each of three friends. The emphasis here is on sorting by color and counting to three. Activity four has players count animals. Last, users celebrate their success with a dance party.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
Juana la Iguana en la Granja is a great app for fully immersing your young child in the Spanish language. There is no English translation and children must figure out the games without relying on English directions.
Built-in hints, like having directions written in the color that has been requested, help players still figuring out the language find success. Additional Spanish prompting or directions are provided if you wait too long to begin each activity.
I also like that the app is built around essential skills that all preschoolers, regardless of native language, are acquiring. Extra skills like animal sounds, initial letter names, and Spanish music are also a focus throughout each activity. Add in good graphics, a cute main character, and a dancing celebration and you've got an engaging app.
In a Nutshell-
Juana la Iguana en la Granja is a great app for kids wanting to practice the Spanish language. With a focus on basic skills, this is ideal for preschoolers or older children who need to practice the language using words and pictures they are familiar with.
