Do you want to teach your child a second language? This amazing storytelling app is the PERFECT resource. Learn more about Fabulingua from the creators themselves.
Guys! I am SO excited to share with you all today about a fun storytelling-based app that also teaches kids a second language. Since I recorded this episode I have had the chance to use the Fabulingua app with Daniel and I also downloaded it on my daughter’s phone for her to use with babysitting as I mention in this episode and guys, this app is AMAZING. I am not even joking. I think you all will love it. But, first, let’s learn more about Leslie and Mark, shall we?
Leslie comes from a multicultural family and was raised in a bilingual environment in Barcelona, Spain. Her interest in linguistics, however, started at Oxford University, where she studied the linguistic development of children from different language backgrounds for her degree in Psychology. Leslie went on to further explore cultural differences with a Master’s degree in Social Anthropology from Cambridge University. As a young professional, she gained experience in finance at Goldman Sachs and product management at L’Oréal, both in London; as a sculptor in Shanghai and real estate developer in Buenos Aires. It was then in Austin, when her adventure as a mother-of-two began, that these experiences and interests came together, and her mind turned to the problem of how to build a better system for kids to learn a second language so that she could reconnect them to her family heritage.
Throughout his life, Mark has appreciated the effect of multicultural exposure. He has lived and worked in Dallas, Boston, New York, London (where he met Leslie), Tokyo, Shanghai, Buenos Aires and Austin (where they started a family!). During this time, he has accumulated deep international experience in finance, strategy, business development and consumer tech.
A graduate of Harvard University, a natural entrepreneur, successful company founder and team builder, a passionate sportsman and musician at heart, Mark knows first-hand the value of being able to experience the world and understands the role of speaking multiple languages in doing so.
