WHO IS EMYS?
EMYS™ is a friendly robotic head that teaches kids ages 3-7 foreign languages through regular, fun interactions. EMYS appeals to multiple senses, and uses language children already know via their favorite cartoons, toys, and items from their surroundings. He can move, speak, recognize faces, and express emotions - which fosters bonding. Through the journey of learning languages, EMYS can become a part of children’s world, full of wonder, characters, imagination.
EMYS is currently equipped to teach English and Spanish. Additional language support is in development.
WHY A ROBOT?
Learning processes take time and it’s best for kids to start early, especially when it comes to language. It’s optimal for kids to start learning a second language while they’re still developing their first language. The trouble is, weekly private lessons are inefficient and expensive, and existing games and language apps don’t have the engagement factor that kids need. Ways of teaching kids must be attractive and engaging to children, as they need to learn with all of their senses. Specifically designed to address the unique learning preferences of early childhood, EMYS leverages the power of repetition, multiple senses, emotional expressiveness, and a sense of accomplishment. To further incentivize participation in lessons, kids earn daily rewards that unlock new games and content.
