Please recommend me an android application that teaches English for small kids (max 5 years). It is okay if it's not free. My kid can't read, so this tool should teach through images.

I have tried availing Kids Learn English with Busuu, but my kid simply passed through the screens without learning and threw it away after ten minutes.

My child is a Polish speaker, but this is not important for kids. They are generally learning from images, sounds and animations/movies.

Should be ads free and without in-payment. Should be optimized for tablets.

Memrise - it is much better for my eight years old daughter than Duolingo, very easy to play with.


Cons: It has in-payment :(
