MAGICAL TRANSLATIONS- An innovative way to teach Spanish to 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. Our method is supported by Dr. Stephen Krashen’s Comprehensible Input Hypothesis. 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 tool for learning. A gentle introduction to a second language. A way to reinforce and supplement literacy. A parent-child bonding activity. An after-school plan. A super fun method for language learning!

And the best part? Any parent or teacher - whether you speak a second language or not - can do it. Simply lean back and enjoy the journey with your child.



#1 Language-learning benefits early brain development; especially executive functioning (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 enhanced 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 estimated 130 million people in the US 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.

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!

Homeschool Spanish made Easy!

First and foremost, we are bilingual homeschoolers - so we don’t take our language resources lightly. FabuLingua is an excellent, gentle way, to increase language learning in our homeschool. For me, it’s hands off and perfect independent study for my 8 year old. Instead of sitting down with him for Spanish, he can open the app and pick up Spanish naturally. I’ve even heard his pronunciation improve due to the native speakers used for the app recordings. For my son, it’s just fun immersive language learning and he really enjoys the stories and animated illustrations throughout the program. The gamified learning improves his recall and his desire to use the program. When it’s time for Spanish, I don’t have to tell him twice because he runs to grab his tablet to use FabuLingua!
