Learn English is a language learning app that is designed by Papumba to help young non-English speaking children take their first steps into learning English through vocabulary and games. Children can choose from a variety of topics such as numbers, animals, home, etc. They can then play games or take trivia challenges to help them with their memory and English Language acquisition. 

The app features several different subjects and games that are introduced in the child’s native language. When the child clicks on an individual topic, they will hear the words said out loud in English. Clicking on the picture again will repeat the word. 

The memory games and trivia questions that are available for each topic and feature bright colors and fun sounds. And the best part of the app is that it is designed specifically for use by young children so adults do not have to guide their children through certain portions of the app; they can simply use the touch interface on their device and begin to learn right away. 

Learn English is free but unlocking all of the app’s features requires purchasing the entire program. 


Learn English helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Working Memory: Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.

Preschool apps are a great way for young children to practice their working memory skills. All of the activities in the app are designed to help children hear and see the sounds of English words and their spellings while being asked to perform a task such as clicking on the word or its corresponding picture once or twice.These types of activities help build the connection in the child’s brain between the information they are being presented and the task they are trying to complete. 

Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

Learning apps are also a great way for children to begin to practice their focusing skills. Because the games and activities in Learn English are short and sustained, children will be practicing this skill by paying attention to the directions and then participating in the game. For example, the memory game builds up in complexity, starting with just two cards and adding more as the child successfully completes each game. This allows the child to start with a very small task and gradually increases the need for focus over time.
