Our Narrative Journey is designed for children aged 7–11 years old, which is a period of rapid word acquisition, no matter how many languages they are in contact with. If the child is already immersed into an English speaking environment and their reading age of English is at least similar to a 5-6 year old native, then our programme should work just the same.
Our product is based on visual memory and spaced repetition, which both create fluency: we teach children how to use the words through word pairs. Word pairs, or collocations, as they are formally known, are the research-proven way to learning a language more quickly and efficiently. Our machine learning experts and lexicographers have mined the English language to find the most statistically common pairs of the words children need to know. Knowing that, our product should help non-native speakers master the English vocabulary even better!
