New Android app: Kids learn English and Spanish!

With the brand new busuu Android app for kids, children will have fun while quickly and easily learning 150 English words. Educate, engage and entertain at the same time!

Our very first Android language-learning product for children teaches 150 words of English through a carefully structured course of 30 learning units, packed full of exciting educational games. And you can download the basic version for free!

A magical growing garden to reward learning

The busuu Kids app can be a shared experience: progress can be monitored at a glance in the child’s very own language-learning garden. Children will be delighted to watch their garden flourish as they learn, motivating them to continue.

Every time the child completes an exercise, a watering can will water a flower in their language garden to make it grow. And each plant holds a secret to discover – their flowers are faces made out of fun vocabulary pictures, created to make the kids laugh!

Stimulating activities, at home or on the go

Colourful illustrations by leading artists and audio recordings by a professional voice actor all create a stimulating and engaging learning environment. There are also plenty of animations to make sure children stay interested. The use of text is limited and all the exercises are clear and self-explanatory, so that they can easily complete the activities without guidance. No need to help – they can amuse themselves and learn wherever they are, whether at home or in the car.

  • discover new words
  • learn vocabulary
  • test understanding
