Noyo, a Boston-based educational software startup, has teamed up with popular Latina homeschool blogger Monica Olivera of Mommy Maestra to raise awareness for Hispanic Heritage month.
"With nearly 200 scenes and over 1800 vocabulary words, this app is a valuable resource," writes Monica Olivera. "The words are divided into 8 theme-based units: Los viajes, la comida, los deportes, la ciudad, la casa, los animales, las estaciones, and la escuela. Each unit features a set of interactive slides that depict colorful, child-friendly (and often humorous!) scenes. I especially love that the voice overs are done by native speakers, so children easily learn the correct pronunciation the first time."
The app review by Mommy Maestra reflects a growing trend in which the education community is taking notice of Noyo Spanish Vocab Builder as an effective and engaging language-learning tool that is particularly useful for children.
"To this date, we have designed all of our Noyo products with children in mind," says Micaya Clymer, product manager at Noyo. "It's no secret that children can become easily distracted or bored with mainstream learning material. Perhaps Noyo's greatest advantage among the hundreds of other Spanish vocabulary apps is its ability to stand out and engage the user!"
Monica Olivera's site Mommy Maestra is a valuable resource for parents homeschooling their children and for all educators. For the free Noyo app giveaway contest, head to mommymaestra.com.
