A veritable visual and auditory wonderland.

Close your teeth and smile!
This app is so creative, and uses engaging and charming exercises to isolate the S sound at the beginning, middle, and ends of words. The “show and tell” song is curiously catchy…even for adults. There are exercises that also engage the young mind in ways that affect speech, such as tracing with both hands. Many subtle details make this a thoughtful app!

This beautifully created app left my 7 year old daughter wanting to play for hours! The characters are adorable and live in a land of their own. The journey Theo makes throughout the app teaches the placement of /s/ in all parts of the word. Would recommend to others.

Fantastic tool for classrooms!
This app is perfect for children struggling with their speech. It is entertaining and offers a variety of ways for children to learn sounds amongst other important skills.

Fun and Creative
As owners of a pre-school we are constantly on the lookout for new tools to engage our students. Junganew is a fun and creative way for kids to explore the world of sounds. The storyline and graphics are engaging and there are highly interactive elements to help facilitate learning. Junganew explores the “S” sound in-depth and Theo is there the whole way to guide you through. Highly recommended!

Great app! The story is engaging for little kids to learn the sound of /s/ in all positions of the word. It even includes s blends. My students love the “mirror” for visual and auditory feedback. Love that there are different activities which include language to elicit words with target sounds. Great addition to my articulation app library.
