Want to teach your child Telugu?

You’ve come to the right place.

Have you been trying to teach your child Telugu and struggled to find the right tools and resources to engage them with the language? Creating a fun and interactive environment for children to learn in is key to setting your child up for success. 

Recent studies have shown the importance of play-based learning in the development of language and spatial skills in children. However, finding quality play-based education tools can be very challenging.  

Luckily, the Shoonya app has designed quality immersive language learning games and activities for multiple languages all on one platform, providing the best environment for your child to learn a new language.

The Best Age For a Child to Learn Telugu

Telugu learning for kids is important to start when a child is young, as learning language and communication skills are a primary part of a child’s development. According to Mayo Clinic, a toddler can start recognizing names of familiar objects and people as young as 18 months old. What does that tell you about language learning? You can start teaching them Telugu at a very young age. At Shoonya we believe the best time to teach your child Telugu is now.

How do you keep your child motivated when they are learning new, challenging things?

You may have first hand experience struggling with getting your child to engage with textbooks and or with traditional learning paths and it is true that if language learning is all about textbooks and whiteboards, children will become bored quickly.

That’s why providing a language learning experience that is fun and engaging is so important. If children are learning through play, they will want to continue playing and ultimately will learn more.

Keeping children motivated and making the learning experience fun is crucial to learning Telugu online.

Telugu Interactive Activities for Kids

Teaching kids to read and write Telugu with confidence

A fundamental step in the language acquisition journey is learning how to read and write.

Literacy is an added challenge when learning a new language, especially when learning a whole new script. For this reason, intentional practice makes a huge difference

Taking the time to actively learn how to read each word and how to write it correctly will help facilitate associations for your child with spoken words and script. The more associations children can make with the language the better and the higher their confidence will be as they start to form their own sentences in the app and on paper.

Each letter and its association is uniquely designed and is accompanied by a cartoon character for word association. Through fun animations, interactive tracing tutorials and puzzles, children get a chance to learn language along with the culture.

Helping your child speak Telugu

Learning how to understand and speak Telugu is often one of the most exciting parts of language acquisition. It is a magical feeling being able to communicate with someone in a new language.

Being able to have even the most basic of conversations in a new language offers a nice confirmation that all that hard work is getting them somewhere.

Like writing, Telugu listening skills will naturally develop over time but intentional focus on both listening and speaking will speed up the process and avoid some common mistakes.

Perfect practice makes perfect!

One great advantage of children learning Telugu online is they can repeat an exercise over and over again until they get it right. All without the pressure of having to ask a teacher or tutor to repeat themselves.

Having an online tool that can assist with daily practice is a game changer. Set aside time every day for your child to play the immersive games in the Shoonya app. This will help them build vocabulary that you can reinforce in your daily conversations at home. 

By focusing on proper, effective learning, your child will be taking big strides to fluency, fast.

Available on Android and iOS

Telugu is a phonetic language meaning that nearly every letter of the alphabet has a corresponding sound. Because of this and the fact that there are no rigid sentence structures one must learn to form new sentences, Telugu is a fairly straightforward language to learn

Immersion is one of the best ways to learn a new language. Because Telugu is a phonetic language, learning from native speakers or listening to native speakers talk is an easy way to learn and understand the language. The Shoonya app is a great resource because we use native speakers to voice all of the vocabulary and instructions for games and activities in each language.

As is the case with any language, time and practice are key in learning how to understand the language and speak like a native. With dedicated practice in an immersive environment, you could pick up a good amount of vocabulary within 30 days.

If you are a native English speaker or used to Latin script, the Telugu alphabet may seem very intimidating, however like anything with practice it is just as easy to write in Telugu as it is in English. The Shoonya app has made tracing and letter recognition with multiple activities for children to interact with the Telugu script.
