Linguacious® Around the Home Spanish Flashcard Game
Age range 2 years thru 12 years
Toy Type AT -- Audio Tape CG -- Card Game CT -- Cultural GE -- Game MM -- Multimedia SR -- Socially Responsible The Linguacious™ flashcards for helping children learn vocabulary in a first or foreign language were created by parents and a professional Ph.D. linguist to fill an important void in the language learning market. These flashcards (increasingly available in more languages and topics) are the only vocabulary flashcards currently available that offer: (a) real pronunciation by native speakers through the innovative use of QR codes on each card, thus fostering acquisition of the correct pronunciation of each word, (b) over 8 different games that children of different ages and at different developmental levels can play to learn and practice active and passive knowledge of the words in each deck, and (c) independent practice of each of the four main language skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing, based on scientific, well-researched, and validated principles of successful language acquisition. In addition to being the only vocabulary flashcards that offer the three features, the Linguacious™ flashcards also include real-world images to represent each vocabulary item. They were developed to foster social and linguistically-rich interactions through fun word games.
