Learning a Second Language with LingoKids
Thursday 2 August 2018
One of the objectives of Pies Descalzos is for students to learn a second language. Projects to meet this objective are implemented in the classrooms through volunteering and programs that are specifically designed for learning English.
For this occasion, the students have had the opportunity to use Lingokids, a bilingual and technological program that works through an application available on smartphones and tablets.
How does it work?
Lingokids allows students ages 2 to 8 to have an English language learning experience by providing interactive games, songs, videos, traceable writing and direct instructions. With this application, learning is both entertaining and intense. It is also accessible to both native English speakers and non-English speakers around the world.
With this program we do not only have learning, but also a motivation to learn. Both the children and the teaching team know that mastery and knowledge of a second language is fundamental in quality education. That’s why we give a huge THANK YOU! to Lingokids for this alliance that has come to improve the lives of many Colombian children.
“The knowledge of languages is fundamental to be able to access better opportunities in the future, and the mission of Lingokids is to provide the same opportunities for all the children of the world. Therefore, we are very happy to be able to offer our content and technology to hundreds of children through one of the foundations that most supports the right to education in Colombia, “says Cristobal Viedna, CEO of Lingokids.
