PROGRAMME FEATURES : KIDDY BILINGO

Kiddy Bilingo introduces young children to the dual languages of English and Chinese in an easy and fun package. What goodies have we lined up for you? Bilingual content that is always meaningful to your little ones, snazzed up with appealing pictures, engaging narratives and colourful fonts, and delivered in small doses of incremental difficulty. It is a power combo of child-friendly principles and state-of-the-art technologies all rolled into one --- creating a unique learning experience you and your child will look forward to.

Kiddy Bilingo offers 2 different lesson speeds to help your child get acquainted with English-Chinese word-pairs : normal-speed mode and fast-speed mode (of 1 second or less). Why include a fast-speed mode? The purpose is to optimise the dominant right brain of young kids to facilitate the acquisition of many languages. As Makoto Shichida believed, the genius right brain plays an instrumental role in the multilingual talents of little children. With Kiddy Bilingo, you can be assured that your precious one is always learning in accordance with the key theories and practices of early learning experts!



5 Pictures For Each Word

Every word-pair is accompanied by 1 of 5 different pictures to illustrate its meaning. Take the word-pair ‘apple - 苹果,’ for example. There will be 5 different images of an apple in various perspectives, in cut and uncut form, and in varying colours of red and green. In this way, your child can create more mental associations around the words ‘apple’ and ‘ 苹果,’ leading to a more sophisticated concept of an ‘apple’ and ‘苹果’ in his brain.

Clear, Big And Bold Text

Every word is presented in clear and big text to capture your child’s attention. The younger a child, the more important it is that words are big enough for him to see and read effortlessly. This is particularly the case, if your child is less than 8 months of age --- 8 months being the point when your child’s vision becomes mature, letting him see the world almost as well as you do.

Various Font Types And Colours

Every English and Chinese word will appear in various font types and colours. Even subtle changes in the appearance of a word can make a huge difference to the learning of children. How is this so? By changing the way a word looks, your child is encouraged to make generalisations that would aid in easier word recognition in the future.

Left-to-right Tracking

We read modern English and Chinese text from left to right, but scanning from left-to-right in a straight line is not a natural process. Instinctively, children tend to look all over when given a book, and often fail to develop the left-to-right tracking skill essential for proficient reading. To directly teach children how to process a word, we have introduced a left-to-right tracking tool, in the form of a dot that runs under the word as the word is verbalised. This allows children to ‘see’ how we are reading.

Randomisation

Children are very good at memorising the order of things, so how do we ensure that they truly learn the English and Chinese words, rather than just the order of the word-pairs? Elementary, we can randomise the word-pairs for every lesson! This is actually no small thing. Early childhood educators believe that it is absolutely critical to randomise the order of words seen by a child, as it impacts on how much he is able to absorb from the lessons. When words are presented in wholly different orders, your child will be able to learn far more words than merely from one fixed order alone.

A Team of 6 Voice-over Talents

For the purpose of Kiddy Bilingo, we have specially prepared a team of 6 professional voice-over talents --- 3 respectively for the English and Chinese components. What your child will hear when a bilingual lesson is played are the clear, crisp and lively enunciation of an adult male voice and 2 adult female voices for each of the languages. We have chosen a predominantly female line-up because young children have been found in many studies to be naturally attracted to higher-pitched voices.

2 Lesson Speeds

Kiddy Bilingo comes with 2 lesson speeds for parents to choose from, depending on your child’s unique needs and preferences: (i) normal-speed mode and (ii) fast-speed mode of 1 second or less. The beauty of the fast-speed mode is that it helps to stimulate your little one’s right brain, harnessing its functions of mass memory and automatic processing to make the learning of other languages more effortless and effective.

Order of Languages

Kiddy Bilingo offers you a choice between doing the English-to-Chinese bilingual programme or the Chinese-to-English version. If English is the more active language in your household, or your little tot’s stronger language, then you should go with the English-to-Chinese option. Alternatively, if Chinese is your household's native language, and what your child feels more familiar with, then our Chinese-to-English programme will be more suitable for your little one’s needs. Should both languages be used equally often in your home, or if your child is young enough to not have developed a dominant language yet, then you are free to adopt either order of languages as your selection.

Tracking Of Progress

Kiddy Bilingo is able to track your child’s progress through the lessons, indicating which lessons have been done . This is a useful feature for parents, who wish to be updated on the learning process of their children, particularly after a short break from lessons.
