It's as easy as child's play, and works like magic!
Dino Lingo is an interactive language learning program for children. Fueled by your child's imagination, learning a new language through our immersive teaching techniques has never been easier. Dino Lingo incorporates play and storytelling into their language learning programs; this method encourages your child to start speaking it almost immediately!
The science behind "Dino Lingo Method":
1 - Full Immersion
Children naturally learn a foreign language from Dino Lingo videos because they hear common phrases and vocabulary hundreds of times without any interruption. Imagination and repetition captures a child's interest in learning and development.
2 - Contextual Variation
Each of the foreign language learning words used in Dino Lingo programs is presented to the listener in at least 4 different contexts. In addition, unlike other programs, Dino Lingo repeats words intermittently and not just consecutively which triggers the child's memory development.
3 - High-Pitched Female Voices
Scientific studies show that babies and young children identify best with high-pitched voices, otherwise known as "motherese" or child-directed speech. We have worked with female and child actors with high-pitched vocals for this reason.
4 - Pronunciation
Dino Lingo language programs are recorded by native speakers of each language.
5 - Gradual Interval Recall
Each target word Dino Lingo introduces is timed to be presented at different intervals, triggering memory (e.g. The word 'car' is presented in the 5th minute, the 10th minute, and again in the 30th minute).
6 - Optimum Combination of 3D/2D Animation
Recent studies have shown that children prefer to watch animations over real-life footage. Designed to capture your child's attention, 80% of Dino Lingo videos are presented as either 3D or 2D animations.
7 - Neonate Characters
Dino Lingo uses animated characters that have baby-like faces. There are no monstrous, scary or wild characters in Dino Lingo products since they are age appropriate.
8 - Animism
Research shows that small children have a tendency to believe that all objects are alive (e.g. talking and dancing cars). Dino Lingo features many lively objects that capture the children's attention and curious imagination.
9 - Subtitles in Both Foreign Characters and English Alphabet
At Dino Lingo, we know that most parents want to be able to read the captions in both the local characters of target language as well as the English (Latin) alphabet. We provide this to you as are the facilitator helping your child understand their new language.
10 - Sudden Surprises
To capture the little ones attention, Dino Lingo uses some scientific techniques such as sudden appearance and disappearances, sudden pans, zoom-ins and unfamiliar sounds. This keeps a young mind interested and busy as they learn along.
What is Dino Lingo Language program for kids?
Dino Lingo for Kids is a language set in which cartoon dinosaurs introduce the 200 most common words of a target language. Language sets consist of 6 DVDs; each DVD focuses on specific learning topics: colors, numbers, family, animals, food, fruit and vegetables, vehicles, body parts, clothes, nature and verbs and actions. After watching these videos several times, most small children can easily name everyday objects and understand basic phrases such as, "Hello" or "What is this?" in their target language. Dino Lingo is ideal for fostering a toddler's cognitive development and has won the Mom's Best Award, for the French program, and Dr. Toy's Top 10 Educational Toys Award. Dino Lingo language learning programs are most effective for children up to 8 years of age, as well as anyone interested in learning the basics of a new language.
