You can select your native language to guide your children, and also you can change the language at any time. The assistant Diya will be friendly with you so that your children will understand more and try to improve your children reading skill. This app is asking your children to read aloud so that the speed of pronunciation of words will increase.

And the very important thing is, it is fun reading that your children will not get bored while reading. And also they will not feel like it is school or class to study with a bad mood. Children will ask voluntarily ask you to run that.

And the other important feature is that it is available in both online and offline. So that we don’t need internet connection all the time, we can use 24/7.

They are not collecting any initial amount to use the app. It is totally free to use this app. Now many have downloaded this app and use to enhance their children skill in reading.

More than 1 million downloads for this app and also 9000 have reviewed this app as it is helping their children to enhance their skill using our own language. Almost everyone reviewed in a positive way that it is the best app to use.

Many people have been asking to include more number of languages in this app as it contains only eight languages. So people who know languages other than this will not be able to get their own language. But they can use English as a speech-language.

So as I personally downloaded this app and using it for a week. Actually, this will definitely help your children to improve their speaking ability in English and also they will have some fun by using this app.

I have found that it is designed colourfully to attract children, and also it is full of cartoon pictures to attract children. So children will be happy to use this app, and they will speak aloud. This will encourage them to spend more time using this app, and they will gain more confidence to read.
