MAGICAL TRANSLATIONS- An innovative way of introducing Spanish for kids
Through our Magical Translations™ method, children see only the Spanish text, but hears the narrator’s rhythmic (and strategically timed) alternation between Spanish and its English translation. This allows them to easily comprehend and follow the story in a relaxed and engaged way. Which is the ideal state for language acquisition!
Our method is supported by the Comprehensible Input Hypothesis by Dr Stephen Krashen. Simply put, “comprehensible input” is new-language input that can be comprehended by listeners despite them not understanding all the words.
This theory and our method are most effective when applied during early childhood, when children’s brains will wire more efficiently to the languages to which they are exposed.
FabuLingua is: A story. A game. A bedtime ritual. A gentle introduction to a second language. A complement to Spanish lessons. A parent-child bonding activity. An after-school plan. A super fun storytelling method for language learning!
ADVANTAGES OF LEARNING SPANISH FOR KIDS DURING CHILDHOOD.
#1 Language-learning benefits early brain development; especially executive functioning such as problem-solving, the ability to focus, and switching between tasks efficiently.
#2 Studies by Harvard University suggest that learning languages at an early age has increased advantages over doing it later in life; like enhancing creativity and critical thinking skills.
#3 It provides academic and professional advantages, cultural awareness, emotional intelligence and self-confidence.
#4 In an increasingly globalized world, new languages are acquiring exponential value. An estimate of 130 million people in the USA will speak Spanish over the next 30 years.
#5 In the case of Spanish and Hispanic heritage families, Spanish will allow their children to better understand their background, bond with relatives and connect to their culture.
FABULINGUA IS A MAGICAL SOURCE OF SPANISH STORIES FOR KIDS THAT WILL EXPOSE THEM A NEW LANGUAGE IN THE MOST GENTLE AND FUN WAY EVER!

Smart, detailed, and highly engaging!
My 9 year old daughter has no prior Spanish experience, and she has already learned so much! There are so many layers of engagement written into this program that seem to approach all different types and ages of learners. The lessons are well-paced, and children of a variety of ages have opportunities to uncover more sophistication in all of the embedded vocabulary and usage hidden through the program. There are some games to check on your child’s overall comprehension in each lesson. And my daughter really enjoys the feature where she can practice her oral skills and record herself reading the stories in small chunks following the narrator. The story narrator has a clear voice with lovely pronunciation that seems to inspire my daughter to perfect her accent. The stories are very sweet with great illustrations and animations, and my daughter often laughs out loud at some of the characters and occurrences in the stories as she is learning. I highly recommend this educational app for children in a wide age range. This would also be a fantastic app for homeschoolers looking to incorporate Spanish into their curriculum.
Truly unique. Highly recommended.
Our 4 year old is in a Spanish immersion daycare, but we speak English at home. Often, we’d try to read her Spanish/English books at bedtime, but she’s complain that she didn’t want the Spanish... only English - the traditional book medium seemed too boring and we, her parents, are too closely associated with English for her to accept our trying to teach her Spanish. This app has given us a beautifully-designed, engaging way to meet her where she lives, in a digital format with fun characters that she spends hours playing with and learning from. It takes elements of the dress-up type apps she likes (but that are fairly mindless) and adds both an age-appropriate storyline and valuable language acquisition.
Now that we’ve gotten through all of the sections, we’re excited to see what new stories are on the horizon!
Fabulous way to immerse in Spanish!
We were introduced to the beta test of Fabulingua while our kids were in Spain this summer and it made our Spanish language study so much more interesting and fun. The stories are adorable and engaging and the illustrations are beautiful.
The best part for my children, 8 and 11, was that the magical translations makes it easy to process sentence structure and how it varies from English to Spanish. Storytelling in this way helped them start “thinking” in Spanish. I’m excited to read more books with my family.
