Junganew: A Herd of Sounds "S"
Last month, my 5-year old nephew greeted me with his “Merry Crithmath!” Oh, those lisping kids are cute, aren’t they? Lisping eventually loses its adorable quotient (Although I find Jim Carrey’s character from the Cable Guy eerily charming), and parents want their children to learn proper pronunciation sooner rather than later. APPY Entrant, Junganew, has given parents a fun way to introduce proper elocution to their children.
Junganew is a series of mobile apps, both for Apple and Android platforms. Proper pronunciations are recorded by heart-meltingly-big-eyed characters like Miss Snake and Sal A. Mander. Each character takes a child on an exciting journey filled with sounds and guiding them through places like Ssseashore, Sssand Central Ssstation, or Colisssseum.
The app includes interactive mirror models, original music and games focusing on language development and other pragmatic and cognitive skills. The outstanding graphics, hand painted watercolors, add to the child’s user experience. This app is a fun and engaging tool for kids to explore the world of ssssoundssss.
