Children are
Special...


...and have many unique needs when it
comes to language acquisition.

Children learn differently from adults thanks to differences in the developing brain and emotional and cognitive maturity. Importantly, the tone and tenor of their voices differs significantly from adults and it is still changing as they are growing! These factors present challenges to measuring the speech of children and developing ways to help them acquire and improve language. LanguaBooks™ is up to the challenge.

Motivation

Children will engage in what they enjoy. Earn points, stars and rewards each time they change letters form red to green is a surefire way to keep them on task and accelerate the learning process.

Acoustical Models for Children

Adults need to be able to learn “on-the-go” and when they can squeeze in the time. At the same time Adults need to learn at their own pace and with the privacy afforded by their one on one tutor, their LanguaBook. LanguaBooks™ support a variety of mobile formats to meet their needs.

Acoustical Models for Children

Children’s voices are very different than adult voices. To score them accurately you need acoustical models designed specifically for children. SRI International provides LanguaMetrics, Inc with high precision children’s acoustical models to ensure children’s success.
