TEACH YOUR CHILD ANOTHER LANGUAGE

PRICE

£9.99 per month or £89.95 for a yearly subscription

WHY

We tried lots of local French classes but this has been by far the most engaging and productive. It’s all about an extraterrestrial named Muzzy on his adventures through Gondoland with his cohort Bob the Gardener. The story is a little quirky, but the music is catchy and only native speakers are used so there’s no dodgy pronunciation. There are seven languages including French, Spanish and Mandarin. It’s creators say no other language learning program is designed for children as young as two, as many of the games and activities can be used by non-readers. But older children also benefit as there are lots of more challenging games and activities. It definitely is worth trying out.

GREAT FOR

Using their screentime for something fun and educational

“Muzzy is a real treat in our house. I let my eldest watch it when she might be asking for CBeebies and she has already started to pick up small phrases and words – we love the music too and it always inspires a little kitchen disco.”
