The NatiV Project

ASSISTIVE LEARNING TECHNOLOGY

“NatiV helps Kids learn to read Shona by improving their ability to associate syballes (ba, be, bi, bo, bu, etc) to their respective sounds. Next it helps them learn how to build words, and then whole sentences. It also keeps performance statistics, so you can track your child’s progress!
