SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) July 26, 2015
Monkimun is an award-winning educational technology company that makes language learning for toddlers and kids fun with their educational apps, based on immersive learning. Today the company has announced that Monki Shake It, one of its 7 unique language learning apps for children ages two-to-six, has won a prestigious award granted by El Chupete.
El Chupete is the First International Festival for Kids Advertising and Communication. An independent festival whose mission is to annually award and recognize the best creative work with values, directed to kids. This festival has been celebrated on July 8th and 9th. Their recognition for Monki Shake It isn’t just a trophy. Monki Shake It was carefully judged and identified among hundreds of other great learning apps for children by El Chupete’s expert judges, independent industry experts who have extensive professional experience working with children, parents and other experts.
Marieta Viedma, Monkimun's co-founder, attended the festival and took part on a discussion board where many professionals and educators discussed about learning methods for little children.
“Parents are under pressure to give their children growth opportunities that feed their kids’ lifelong success. So, introducing fun, mobile age-appropriate language learning games that help their children become fluent in a second language early on not only helps feed this success, but is really fun for and well accepted by the kids,” said Marieta Viedma. “All content developed by Monkimun's educational experts is specifically designed to reinforce a young child's mother tongue or introduce sounds and structure of a second language, a very important step in being able to speak it fluently.
Monki Shake It has four lessons disguised as mini-games and one to evaluate acquired skills. Children are exposed to different grammatical structures, questions, commands and new vocabulary according to the topic of each one of the lessons, including numbers, musical instruments, animals, toys, means of transport and weather. Each lesson can be played in two different modes, tapping or shaking the device, making learning possible for even the youngest players. Monki Shake It is available in three languages: English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese and can be downloaded from the Apple Store, Amazon, and Google Play.
Monkimun is a San Francisco/Madrid based startup founded in 2014. Monkimun technology makes language learning for toddlers and kids fun. It enables parents to raise multilingual children and give them a greater chance for success the rest of their lives. Monkimun currently offers seven award winning children’s language learning apps in English, Spanish and Chinese, including the awarded Monki Hide & Seek 2, Monki Home, Monki Shake It and the Google’s 2014 best app award winning Monki Chinese Class. All of them can be downloaded from the Apple Store, Amazon and Google play.
