Take your child's reading skills to the next level!

why KOBI

Kobi method instantly improves reading rate and accuracy. Success motivates kids to read more & more and this leads to reading fluency and a better comprehension.

Reading is not easy. Children who experience reading difficulties like Dyslexia end up being frustrated and stressed. And this is exactly why we we created KOBI, an app that helps children to read.

WHY COLOUR HELPS

In order to read, a child needs to recognise letter shapes instantly and accurately.

kobification

Perfect formatting

Many children have great difficulty automating the correct recognition of similar shapes. Colour helps the brain to distinguish letters faster and the child is able to progress.

KOBI in action

Visual support

Deconstructing long strings of letters is a difficult job. By actually seeing accentuated vocals, your child understands where to hold the voice. In this way he or she intuitively recognises the syllables and can adjust the rythm of reading to a comfortable pace.

Practise & daily use

Kobi was carefully crafted to help your child at every turn. That’s why we’ve included a library of free books to get started. Need more? Simply import your own or scan any text with the camera. Difficult words? Kobi’s Text-to-Speech happily reads them out loud!

KOBI nation!

Kobi, my friend!

Kobi helps to reduce the stress and put the fun back into practising of reading.

Motivation

When a child is motivated, he or she can face any obstacle, solve any problem or climb any kitchen cabinet. Kobi was designed so it keeps the child motivated for the duration of the session and beyond.

Less stress

Because children see and feel their learning progress, they have more fun doing it. That reduces stress and improves the learning process even more!
