“We are proud to finally share our Portuguese update to Speech Blubs for Brazilians,” says Mitja Mavsar, co-founder of Blub Blub, Inc. “We have recorded hundreds of videos of Portuguese-speaking children, translated all of the short stories within the English app, and adapted our bonus videos to include Portuguese voice overs. This is a fun and effective tool designed to support children who want to practice Portuguese, or even English as their second language.”
According to the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA), children who grow up in bilingual households can experience a “silent period” in which they may not talk as much when they start using a second language. The Portuguese update a tool that bilingual or Portuguese-speaking families can use to overcome this silent period and encourage improved speech, pronunciation, and sound/word production in a fun, engaging and effective way. Children can build their vocabulary around a vast array of concepts, including colors, shapes, and numbers, songs and rhymes, as well as lessons on body parts, animals, foods, and more.
