Language Development

Start communicating with ChatAble in just a few taps, using our core vocabularies. It will automatically start suggesting words based on what you are typing. These suggestions are great for teaching vocabulary and improving sentence construction. You can also hold down on the grid to show grammar suggestions, which show plurals, possessives, alternate tenses and a range of adjective options.

"I love the history feature, and being able to change the grids. Being able to search pictures is great. Bastian loves it and we feel we can now have a conversation, impossible in the past."

Bastian, Chatable IOS

"…I think it's worth every penny as I can't put a price on my child’s voice. My eldest daughter and I bought the iPad Air and a griffin tech case and I started customising the app. I walked around our house, town, nursery and set about photographing every part of Cocos life to make it more relevant to her. We've also started recording on Model Talker."
