This new app lets your children tune into the sound of a new language as they view any of the 39 episodes -- with or without subtitles -- from the international animated series "Louie," or play one of the educational minigames linked to the episodes. A multilingual illustrated dictionary lets kids listen to the words they have learned. Children can also record themselves in another language and share their progress with the whole family by email. Registration is not obligatory but enables kids to accumulate stars which can be used to get free episodes and new minigames.
