Teacher Overview

One Globe Kids - children's stories from around the world app really helps children see what it is like to live in other countries through the perspective of native children.

Teacher Review

Kids choose a story, then listen to and read it by swiping through each page to turn to the next page. If you want to choose different approaches to the story, choose "Adventure" or choose "Start to Finish!" to read from beginning to end. Tap "Conversations" and press the red button to record audio of your own voice telling your story (which isn't shared publicly). Tap the language option to hear and practice speaking some vocabulary words in another language. Beautiful photos and high-quality audio add to this cultural and social learning experience.
Parents can try speaking and recording some words in the languages of the featured kids with your kid. Learning and remembering just a few words in different languages at a young age can spark kids' long-term interest in and confidence about learning more languages.
