Second Language is an easy to use educational app to stimulate and inspire communication, language development, and multilingualism in children. The app is designed for use in nurseries, kindergartens, schools and homes.

All translations and recorded sounds are made by professional interpreters.

The built-in image library includes 300 everyday words for children in 25 different languages, including many minority languages:

  • English
  • American English
  • Amharic
  • Arabic
  • Burmese
  • Farsi
  • Kurdish (Soranî)
  • Kurmanji
  • Lithuanian
  • Norwegian - Bokmål
  • Norwegian - Nynorsk
  • Oromo
  • Pashto
  • Persian (Dari)
  • Polish
  • Russian
  • Somali
  • Swedish
  • Tagalog
  • Tamil
  • Thai
  • Tigrinya
  • Turkish
  • Urdu
  • Vietnamese

The images are gathered into ten albums based on everyday themes, with thirty image cards in each album. When a child taps an image the associated word is read out loudly in the selected language. The child can easily switch between their first and second language by tapping a button. 

You can easily add your own images and albums by using the built-in camera and microphone. This enables you to build an image library specifically adapted to certain users or to educational goals. You can create multiple users and adapt each to the individual's learning needs.

*Amharic, Burmese and Tigrinja do not have native keyboard support. These languages are audio only unless you install the relevant font.
