Build your child’s language skills with Mzanzi Kids
Being unable to be a part of the outside world has created a new trend #learnsomethingnew among adults and children, with most of these new skills being learned through technology. Technology has recently become many things in a household: an educator, a baby-sitter, a news source and quite simply, a view to the outside world.
Mzanzi Kids, available on Android and IOS, helps children from the ages of two to six learn and develop language skills in their mother tongue, or in one of the other official South African languages available on the App. This first-class, educational App visually highlights everyday concepts together with the correct pronunciation of words in six South African languages – English, Afrikaans, IsiZulu, IsiXhosa, Sepedi and Setswana. It is a secondary-based learning application designed to stimulate visual, speech and language literacy at an early age.
Developed by Leigh Desai and Edwin Peacock after noticing the lack of availability of quality South African education Apps, Mzanzi Kids was created with South African children as their muse, hoping to not only provide literacy skills in home languages, but introduce and develop skills in other official languages. The App includes 12 everyday themes suitable for young children through an integration of images and phonetics to encourage confidence, fluency and comprehension in their chosen language.
“Being able to lay the correct foundation of a language in a young child allows for a successful building of further language rules as they grow through language education,” says Peacock. “Knowing concepts and rules early on in any language allows for effective retention and correct pronunciation and usage of words.”
