About Mzanzi Kids
The Mzanzi kid’s 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 pronunciation of speech in six different South African languages; English, Afrikaans, IsiXhosa, IsiZulu, Sepedi and Setswana.
The integration of images and sound introduces 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.
To nurture a future generation of multilingual kids that embraces all languages of South Africa and Africa.
