Research shows that children with an early language development get higher IQ, a better reading comprehension in adult age and a better verbal fluency making a difference throughout life.* A big vocabulary before school start results in a better language and reading comprehension. A small vocabulary before school start results in a poor language and reading comprehension.**

According to PISA surveys 2000 – 2012 Swedish students perform below the OECD average and are showing decreasing results at reading comprehension. The gap in reading between a 15 year old student at the bottom end and the average student is the equivalent of more than three years of schooling according to Unicef. Good reading comprehension is the key to success in most school subjects and the foundation for lifelong learning and active lives as citizens (prof. Reichenberg). We need to make up for poor vocabulary before children start school. Children need a strong linguistic foundation in order to be able to reach their full potential!

Coocoolo wants to reach children where they are, in the mobile word. Therefore we are currently developing our first game for children at age 2-5 that will naturally increase the child’s vocabulary in it’s mother tongue and offers a virtual language teacher. We aim to develop playful games that captures the child’s interest.
