ABOUT US

The Mzanzi kids multilingual language learning App was created for children between the ages of 2 - 6 years in South Africa. It was designed to stimulate visual, speech and language literacy skills at an early age by understanding basic everyday concepts and highlighting the correct pronunciation of speech in six different languages; English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Sepedi and Setswana. ​

 

The integration of images and phonetics provides a good foundation for children to learn and speak in their mother tongue or home language with confidence and fluency, but most importantly comprehend and appreciate the diversity of languages used by South Africans daily. This multilingual language learning App upholds the fundamentals of language acquisition before entering a schooling environment.
