The Navajo Toddler App is designed for children ages 2 to 9 to learn to speak the Navajo language through the use of interactive visual flashcards, audio, and gameplay lessons.

The use of the app will introduce children to basic Navajo vocabulary in categories such as numbers, food, colors, body parts, common sayings, and animals. Children can flip through the fun illustrated flash cards for a visual association of the word and listen to the audio pronunciation of each word to get familiar with how the word is spoken. Once a child becomes familiar with the words they can play a visual and audio game that will give them three fun illustrations to choose from and one word in Navajo to increase there memory of words and pronunciation. The game is random and kids can keep playing an increase their knowledge of the language.

Learning Navajo is a fun and exciting exercise for your child especially at a very young age. With the Navajo Toddler app, your child will enjoy the attraction of interactive flashcards, audio, and the positive feedback and progression through gameplay of the play module.

Navajo Toddler App

I love the Navajo pronunciation of the words. The words sound like my mother-in-law spoke them. My two grandchildren (7 year old girl and 4 year old boy) are 1/4 Navajo. They want to learn their native language. The Navajo words match the English words but they do not match the pictures. This is especially confusing for the 4 year old who can’t read the English words. This app is perfect for them and for me (an Anglo) for a review of common words. Please, please fix the pictures!! Thank you for creating this app.

Needs update

I have had this app for a few years. I am half-Navajo so it helps me a little and my kids learn basic words. However, I just noticed (Jan 2020) that my app is no longer correct. Once the automatic update happened the words do not match the picture. For example, in the numbers section, it would say the Navajo word for 1, but showed 18. I tried to delete the app and add it again, but it did not work. This needs to be corrected fast.

Works great

Has basic colors and items. Clear pronunciation so words are easy to pick up. Though, I do wish the also had the English word to help my toddler associate more then just a picture. Also if the picture were itself animated with facial features, like a brain or door having eyes so that also made it confusing. But, Great and simple app for free!
