The Swiss ABC Dino - animal alphabet by Roland Zoss is a work of art enlivened by pictures, sounds and songs.
The meaningful activity generated by "ABC Dino" has already introduced thousands of children to the written word. This learning app is also a suitable tool for adults wishing to gain familiarity with a foreign language in an enjoyable way.
This lite version shows four animated animals in English. The full versions are available in English, French, German, Spanish and Swiss German. Format: animal song album or e-book, illustrated by hand. The "ABC Dino" has a proven track record, having been in use since 1999. This product collects no data. No hidden in app costs are involved.
Activity begins with the melody of the dino “Xenegugeli". As the image of the animal is swiped, the relevant first letter is identified, both by name and the sound associated with it. By tapping twice on the image of the animal depicted, the user advances to the writing exercise. When the upper-case and lower-case version of the letter are written correctly, the animal becomes animated and emits a sound. A segment from a song in the relevant language then plays. The english version is sung by Clare de Lune.
The 26 animal songs can be downloaded directly from iTunes Store via the parental gate at the end of the app.
