Children can learn a language at the Library with KidSpeak

All you need is a library card to introduce your children to English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Mandarin Chinese. Designed for ages 6 and up, the program teaches words and phrases suitable for learners’ age, needs, and interests. More than 40 activities, puzzles, and songs guide learners through the basics, along with a cartoon “friend” who speaks the language.

Using the successful immersion approach preferred for young children, KidSpeak introduces the alphabet and word recognition, simple sentences, how to use plural and singular, how to distinguish between words that look and sound similar, simple addition and subtraction, how to tell time, number recognition (matching numbers to written words), and correct pronunciation.

Best of all, your child can learn from anywhere. KidSpeak works on computers, tablets, and phones so your little ones can learn on the go, at home, or in the library. Go to Transparent Language Online and select available Kidspeak language to get started!
