“What a fun idea for learning a language! My six year old daughter has been using this app to practice her Mandarin skills and her vocabulary has already grown substantially. Her favorite part is prepping food for the cute characters and «cleaning» up after they eat. We love that Moka Mera offers multiple languages aside from English and Mandarin, as our daughter has expressed interest in learning Spanish too. The characters encourage good hygiene habits as you can practice going to the bathroom and washing up after, and makes learning a new language fun and engaging for kids. A great app if you are raising a bilingual child!”
“Moka Mera Lingua is interactive, non-linear, and exploratory based. It’s an effective way of introducing and learning a new language.”
“I liked the animation and playfulness of the app. I liked the interactivity of the app as a whole. I must say that my son spent most of his time changing the pitch of his voice via the interactive microphone! He was very fascinated by this! He played with this single part of that app for a long time. He also liked listening to all of the different languages, in particular Mandarin and German. I liked the fact that music was introduced as well. Musicality is key when teaching foreign languages to younger children. What sets this app apart from others, aside from its unique cartoons and playfulness, is that it is free, has no ads, no information is tracked, and you can just give the phone to your child knowing that s/he is safe and learning for the next few minutes. Great app and great company!”
“Completely free and no ads; safe for children. Children learn foreign languages, vocabulary, and pronunciation skills.”
