Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, May 20, 1:42 AM

The up and coming language of the future is Mandarin Chinese.  These helpful apps will give you an easy, comfortable way to learn the ancient language which is spoken by a good portion of the world's population.  China is the unspoken driver of the world's economy. A knowledge of Mandarin Chinese will come in handy as more businesses establish closer ties with Chinese manufacturers.  Aloha, Russ.

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, May 20, 4:55 AM

To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more.
