What is a bilingual book?
A bilingual, or dual language book balances the use of two languages on one page. The parallel text provides a child-friendly bridge to reading and speaking in another language.
They are widely recognised as a valuable resource for parents and educators to use with children.
The Unuhi platform
Unuhi combines the growing desire globally for language learning with the age-old love of storytelling. With our new app (iPad only), you can read and enjoy fun bilingual stories written for young children in 20 of the most popular languages.
English, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin (Simplified), Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai.
Bilingual books have long been used as a child-friendly bridge to reading and speaking in another language. Unuhi allows you to choose which two languages appear in your child’s story.
Perhaps you’re a parent and you want to introduce your child to your native language. Perhaps you’re a teacher and you want to introduce the children at your school to a variety of languages and diverse cultures. Either way, Unuhi has been designed for you to make language learning fun and affordable.
Unuhi is a year in the making and crafted in Oxford. We hope you will love our app and look forward to adding more books and languages very soon. Do let us know what you think as feedback is very important to us at this early stage.
What’s in the name?
Did you know that Unuhi actually means “translate” in Hawaiian! You learn something new everyday.
