Pop2Talk is a fun learning game for children aged 4 to 8. The player travels around interesting planets and pops moonstones while accomplishing exciting tasks. On each planet, the player needs to figure out what the planet's task is and how to solve the level as they pop the moonstones. When popping the moonstones they hear a sample pronunciation of the target word. After a number of pops the player is shown the meaning of the word in a picture and asked to repeat the word.
The Player's pronunciation is evaluated computationally and stars are handed as a reward. These stars measure the level of proficiency in pronunciation. Now and then the player needs to pronounce a word without hearing the sample. This reinforces learning and also measures the learning of vocabulary.
Pop2Talk method adjusts the ratio of hearing and pronouncing words and uses feedback and game elements to keep the child interested.
Within a game there’s a lot of different surprises and rewards to make the learning more fun and children truly do love to play it, so give it a try!
