BookBox for Language Education

I recently installed the app for BookBox on my Android tablet.   This free app consists of several stories in multiple languages (English, Portuguese, Spanish, French).  Stories can be viewed on Youtube while words spoken are highlighted on the bottom of the screen to indicate which word is being read.

My 4-year old daughter is enjoying these stories, listening to them in both English and Portuguese.  She listened to the story in English first (in which she is fully conversant), then in Portuguese (her target language). 

I would highly recommend using Bookbox as an Android App for any language learner. 

You can install Bookbox on your Android tablet or phone by visiting Google Play store at this link.
