Learn app English with Emma

Senses theme is one of the 36 themes of the app Learn Languages with Emma. Through games, children playfully increase their vocabulary. The Test module provides parents, teachers, and counselors the ability to follow the child's level and keep track of their progress.

Practical Tips for the Theme Senses

In the app, children can learn new words by exploring the Senses theme. It is important for children to engage in additional activities to help them use these words in everyday situations.
Here are some helpful tips:

  • Get a soft, raw and smooth item and put it under a towel. Let someone feel the items and tell you how they feel.
  • Taste different flavours: salt, sweet and sour.
  • Listen to the birds singing outside: what kind of sounds do you hear?

Senses Slideshow

With this activity, the child is introduced to the new words for the first time. The ease of use makes this activity suitable for children 2 years and older. The words are presented in an attractive visual way. The app speaks the word shown after which the child repeats the word.

With this activity the spelling can also be taught to children able to read.

Senses Memory game

Find all the pairs in the game! The words are pronounced when the cards are turned over. If two identical cards are found, a short exercise appears. The cards are shown in large format, the spelling is shown, and the child can repeat the pronunciation with the push of a button.

Many children and parents play Memory together. In addition to learning new words, it is also a fun joint use of time.

Senses Puzzle game

In the puzzle game the children drag the pictures to the correct space. It is reminiscent of the old-fashioned wooden puzzle game with a modern twist.

If a picture has been dragged into the correct box, the corresponding word (with article) is pronounced. After 4 pictures have been placed, the child hears applause. The pictures are then highlighted one by one and the corresponding word is spoken again.

This game teaches children how to pronounce words and stimulates the development of hand-eye-coordination.

The language test measures the vocabulary knowledge of the Senses theme. The following keys are available:

  • Test word recognition based on pronunciation.

  • Test word recognition based on spelling.

  • Combination: test recognition of words based on pronunciation or spelling.

The language test is also regularly used separately to determine the language level of the child from start. For example, to create different groups while trailing a group of children in English.

Results of the language test

After performing the language test, the results can be viewed by parents and educators. You can see for each word whether the correct answer was given and the time it took to answer.

Test results remain available on the device for a few weeks. This gives parents and educators insight into the improvement of vocabulary knowledge over time.
