5 Language-Learning Apps for Bilingual Kids

Let’s face it: our kids will play with our smartphones and our tablets so we might as well put them to good use. If you’re trying to raise bilingual kids, then you may want to do what I do to get them to practice their Spanish. Buy a few of the following apps and tell them they have permission to use your iPad only if they agree to spend at least half of their time practicing their second language. These apps are fun and engaging, so I’m sure they won’t say no.
