Available On

Over 100 quality videos and games

Our animated songs and stories as well as games are designed by the British Council’s language learning experts. Download all the videos to watch whenever you want, even without internet connection! More videos will be added in the future, so stay tuned!

Listen then record encourages speaking

Each video comes with an engaging listen-and-record activity that encourages your child to speak out loud. Children can listen to the narrator, record themselves and compare their pronunciation with the narrator.

Games practise spelling and check understanding

Challenging word and spelling games come with each song and story to help children learn and understand the words they see in the videos.

Understand your child's progress in the parents' area

View your child’s progress in the app in a locked parents area. See how your child is doing in Videos, Speaking, Spelling and Understanding.

Subscribe and get unlimited access to all the songs and videos

The app has a paid subscription package that offers unlimited access to all songs, stories and games. The subscription package is in the parents area which prevents children from accidentally purchasing the subscription.

That app only works on Apple, or whether it was done by rich people for rich kids ...

As 9 out of 10 people, especially in developing countries, have an android phone because they are cheap and open, I don't understand you first developed your app for Apple/Playtime. In this way you keep so many kids eager to learn English out of the challenge. I hope you really want to push the android version forward instead of telling "It might be possible". That sounds too far away. The kids in the developing world will be thankful for it.

Have you thought that only 1 mobile device on 5 is IOS? what about Android? please think of an open world!
