Gus on the Go  a Language Learning Adventure Review & Giveaway

 

Gus on the Go

This App is brilliant!  There are no other explanations!  Gus on the Go is without a doubt the best learning app I have come across.  Go get it now, I love it!  I bought it on a recommendation from a friend and I am so happy that I did!

This is the first App that I have reviewed, not because I haven’t found fun apps, but because I had not yet found one that, that in my opinion, had learning the learning outcomes that I want to see.  Gus on the Go changed that for me.  The learning outcomes are clear and strong, and the entertainment level knocks it out of the park and keeps kids coming back.

Gus on the GoGus on the Go has 26 languages and the kids learn 89 words in each one version.  I kid you not, my daughter (7 years) blew through this thing in a few sittings. Not because it was too easy, but because it was so much fun! (What’s more, I didn’t mind!)

The balance between learning, practice and fun is exactly right with this app.  Each section introduces you to new words with cartoon graphics.  In order to go onto the next level, you have to earn trophy’s by playing fun mini games.  The games are activities like recognizing a Gus on the Goword in French (I bought the French one) then popping the corresponding balloons with the correct animal in them, or participating in a horse race by knowing the correct vocabulary words.

The graphics are colorful, clean, and engaging and the games are simply fun, so fun that my daughter didn’t want to put it down.  Heck, I wanted to play it too!  I was surprised at how quickly she learned the vocabulary words and she is actually retaining them.

Gus on the GoThe only problem with it is that we want more!  More levels, vocabulary and sentence structures please!  I sent an email over to the nice folks at Gus on the Go and told them how much I love their app, but could they please hurry up with some more levels?  The lovely Alice wrote back explaining that the Gus on the Go Team is actually only 2 people (yes, the two of them created this amazing learning tool). She and her counterpart Yono are working hard on the sequel that will teach short sentences using stories.  With any luck it will be available early this summer.  All I can say is that my family can’t wait!

It gets even better!  Alice is giving us 5 iOS promo codes to give away to randomly chosen winners!

The Giveaway will run 2/19/15 – 3/5/15.
