1. Early exposure is is the most effective way to learn a new language.
Research shows that children who are exposed to a new language before the age of 10 have the greatest chance of becoming fluent in that language. Parents, fear not! You can still play minilingo with your little ones and even start learning a new language ... just be prepared–they'll probably win. :)
2. Images help children learn better.
Research has shown over and over again that visual associations are paramount in helping us learn. Visual associations help us remember words more easily, decrease learning time, improve comprehension, retrieval and retention. Don’t believe us? Here's proof.
3. Memory games like minilingo help develop concentration, spatial AND thinking skills.
Every child has played a memory game at least once in their life. And that's no surprise. Memory games are simple, super fun and are also known to strengthen various brain functions. Memory games help improve concentration and attention to detail, encourage spatial awareness and visual recognition, as well as boost thinking skills. And if we factor in minilingo's language learning component, we have a winner! WIN-WIN. It miiiight just be time to say goodbye to plain old flashcards–you won't be needing those anymore.
