This application focuses on the sounds of syllables and how they combine to form words. All words are supported by pictures, so children also acquire vocabulary. Children do not listen to the words in complete sentences, but that is not the focus of the application. It is a game of very effective activities for children learning to read in Spanish.”
Finding quality Spanish language applications for the iPad and iPhone can be a challenge. This is partly because the iTunes store is not particularly easy to search, and also because many language learning apps focus strictly on vocabulary in isolation. Reading in Spanish depends on language in context, so apps that support beginning readers are especially difficult to find.
The following apps for reading in Spanish are appropriate for language learners and most use Spanish in the context of full sentences. They have high quality audio, engaging content and are suitable for a wide range of ages. I have included apps at a variety of levels.
