“I speak 5 languages including Mandarin so it’s very important that my son learns Chinese. Found this app as my son loves owls. He has been playing with the app and has unlocked some lessons and can remember and say the names of all the animals now. He is 26 months but it’s never too early to teach him a new language. A must have for parents who wish to teach their kids a second language!”


“We have an 18 month old and he absolutely loves Gus on the Go. The first thing he asks for in the morning is gus. The app has been really beneficial in developing our boys’ language skills. We have both the Mandarin and English app and are considering getting another one.”
