Getting Started

Once you've created an account, you'll be prompted to choose a language to learn. Notice that some languages have more than one dialect to choose from, while other present a Kidspeak option, which contains engaging and age-appropriate content for ages six and up.


The interface is intuitive and organized around your learning goals.

The Learning tab contains your learning path (your lessons), goals you set for yourself, learned vocabulary words you can review, and practice activities.
