Tablet and smart­phone apps

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Kids -

Does Ju­nior love fid­dling with your iPad or iPhone? If so, tablet and phone apps geared to­wards teach­ing Man­darin might pique his in­ter­est. “I’m a big fan of the Dim Sum War­riors iPad app (www.dim­sumwar­riors. com), a hi­lar­i­ous comic strip fea­tur­ing gongfu-fight­ing dumplings. It’s a very fun and en­gag­ing tool that helps young chil­dren to pick up spo­ken and writ­ten Chi­nese,” says Dan Feng. The app fea­tures in­ter­ac­tive word bal­loons and dual lan­guage ca­pa­bil­i­ties, so your lit­tle one can tog­gle be­tween read­ing the comic in English and Chi­nese.

Other fun apps you can con­sider in­clude Lingu Pin­guin (www.lin­gupin­guin. ele­vi­sion-film.com), an iPhone app which fo­cuses on ev­ery­day vo­cab­u­lary for preschool­ers, and Piggy Pic­nic (www.bet­terchi­nese. com), which ex­poses your lit­tle one to Man­darin through six fun and in­ter­ac­tive games.
