Culture VR - LingoZING!

LingoZING!

about

LingoZING! is an interactive edutaining app that uses comic books, picture books & graphic novels with enabling functionalities to help teach languages to children and adults as well as teach children to read and write in English, French, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish.

The LingoZING! app triggers an intuitive grasp and retention thanks to its methodology of presenting words, sentences, sound and text within the context of an engaging story that is read at one’s own pace in the chosen language. Furthermore, additional features can be activated to improve and test the User’s understanding, enrich their vocabulary, and enhance their pronunciation.

Once the app is downloaded, the User gets access to the LingoZING! catalogue that offers a large choice of popular comics, classified by level of linguistic difficulty, age group and theme. This way,  “Lingozingers” can select and download the interactive comics they desire.

In order to promote the use of this device in French classes, the Institut français has developed an educational support booklet « French as a foreign language » for French teachers.

Check out this video of the app launch in France during the press conference at Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles.
