Related Post: An Honest Review of FabuLingua

FabuLingua is a story-based, authentic language learning app that your child can enjoy independently. Beautiful interactive stories and fun games from storytellers across Spain and Latin America teach your kids Spanish.

This app is the perfect combination of reading and technology, rooted in the latest language learning science around ‘comprehensible input’ to create a new interactive format that is delightful and compelling to kids.

I am a huge advocacy for building a regular Spanish reading routine into your day to nurture your child’s language acquisition. But parents often do not do this either due to their own limited Spanish language capabilities, due to lack of access to enough quality Spanish language books, or simply because they don’t have enough time in the day.

That is why we recommend FabuLingua!

What I love:

  • ‘The Fabulous Learning Path’ has increasingly challenging levels that encourage and build mastery of the story. These levels develop comprehension, pronunciation and literacy.
  • A Game Center that features lots of fun games that reinforce vocabulary, noun gender, syllabic breakdowns and spelling.
  • The Magic Sticker Book provides a highly creative area of free play for the children to enjoy the unique stickers they’ve earned as rewards.
  • The ‘Copycat’ section: your child can speak back and record their voice and compare to the native speaker audio.
  • Independent app: The comprehensible input design means they can navigate the app independently!

FabuLingua’s digital platform provides a practical, affordable solution for families everywhere that is highly effective and puts kids on a path to bilingualism and biliteracy.

UPDATE: ‘Spanish Only’ option available~ Go to settings and toggle to ‘Spanish-only’. This stops the app from translating everything into English.
