One of the most exciting things to happen at Badanamu last year was the release of our vocabulary program, Bada Talk. Every week for the next four weeks, we will be exploring everything that makes this program a really fun and exciting way for your child to learn basic thematic vocabulary.

Bada Talk is designed for young learners at 33 months and above. It is a scaffolded program that offers a build-up of skills for ease of learning. The program centers around core vocabulary separated into two major themes:

(1) Around the Home
(2) Health & Exercise

All the products in the Bada Talk program work together to create a comprehensive vocabulary curriculum:

(1) 12 Storybooks
(2) 12 Board Books
(3) 12 Vocabulary Card Packets
(4) 12 Activity Books
(5) 36 Bada Talk Chant, Song, and Dance Animations
(6) 1 Bada Talk Application (iOS, Android)

The hardcover books are 23x27cm (approx. 9×10.5in) and range from about 28-35 pages. These are Bada Pen enabled so your child can interact with nearly all the elements on the page.
