Whether you are a parent or SLP, the following apps are a must have if you are considering downloading educational language learning apps. These are some of my favorite apps to use during speech therapy that are available in a variety of languages. Check them out!
This is a bundle App that is available in both Spanish and English. This app comes with pictures A to Z with themes about actions, music, aquarium, farm, and bugs. This app is perfect for working on building vocabulary, answering questions about a picture scene or simply having your student expand his/her utterances by describing the pictures.
This is a great app to work on identifying and labeling common categories like shapes, colors, numbers, body parts, animals, transportation items, & food. This app allows you to choose from the following languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, & French. You can also utilize this app as a reinforcer during structured activities!
Learn Spanish allows you to choose between Chinese, English, Spanish, French, Russian and Vietnamese! This app is great for working on verbs. It provides visuals, a video for each verb and allows you to hear the verb in a sentence.
This app allows you to work on listening comprehension. You can also go over story elements such as main characters. It comes with one free story and then you have to pay for the rest. The stories included are the turtle & the hare, the lion & the mouse, the three little pigs, and Goldilocks and the three bears.
This app is also great for working on categories of common objects like farm animals, food, and transportation items. With this app, you can work on identifying and labeling the items.
This app is great for working on articulation in Spanish. It provides target words for each of the phonemes in the Spanish language. You can also choose to work on the target phoneme in words, phrases or sentences
This is another app that you can use to work on articulation of vowels. Just like Articulation Station, you can also choose to work on the target phoneme in words, phrases or sentences.
It's great to have options when working on articulation. Here is another app that I love using when working on articulation. It also provides several target words for each phoneme in the Spanish language and it also allows you to choose between working on the sound in the initial, medial and final position of words

With the holiday season approaching, you are probably wondering what to buy for your little bilingual, or perhaps you are looking to gift an educational toy to a little one on a bilingual journey. Well lucky for you, you are in the right spot! As a bilingual speech language pathologist and new bilingual mom, I am constantly on the search for toys that can provide English and Spanish output.
