Augmented reality works on any phone with a back facing camera. We believe that with technology changing so rapidly children should be gradually introduced to the newest thing. This way when they are adults they will have the general knowledge of how the technology works.
Rhymes are an excellent way for children to learn a language and build their vocabulary. Wordplay is often repetitive and catchy, which helps children easily recall a word or meaning. Rhymes help children learn phonetics, often rhymes repeat difficult sounds which in-turn helps improve their speech.
Picturebook. In this chapter, your child will have to place the images in order to make the story in the picture book. These activities help children understand time and processes. You need to plant the seed before you can water the flowers.
Picturebooks play a large role in childhood development. They help a child comprehend what is being said in the story. It is an excellent way to hear, read and relate to new words. They are often repetitive and rhyme which helps children remember keywords and scenes.
Picturebooks are multi-sensory which stimulates the imagination. When they see the illustrations, smell and touch the pages, they become completely immersed in the story.
Non-Fiction Books. This chapter defines what a non-fiction book is. Read along and learn some interesting facts about spiders, castles and more!

What is W5Go?
Our goal is to create a large collection of immersive educational applications that are available to everyone. Throughout the applications, we aim to help children learn English, by teaching 20+ words in every application. The best way to learn a language is through immersion, we introduce English through voice-over, graphics, and text. All of our applications are free to download, free from advertisements, no internet required and do not have any in-app purchases.
All of our episodes are geared towards children aged 5-8, With bright colors and graphics, we want children to learn English and simples concepts such as proper hygiene, through a fun interactive environment. We want to encourage children to use their imagination, explore and have fun while learning!
We believe that any topic can be taught to a child, by simply breaking it down into the five W’s (Who, What, Where, When and Why). We want to encourage children to always ask the five W’s. When they question how things work and ask “why not” or “what if” they are constantly learning and embracing creativity. In all of our episodes, we go through the five W’s and let the child guess what the answers could be before explaining.
Why AR/ VR Technology?
W5Go focuses on creating virtual environments for children to learn, explore and use their imagination in the safety of their own home. With so many advancements in technology is it important for children to have an even balance of traditional learning and new mobile learning.
Our applications are VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) enabled. Since this technology is becoming such a large part of everyday life, experiencing this technology from a young age is very beneficial, and our applications are meant to complement a child’s traditional education. They feature augmented and virtual reality scenes that are fun, interactive and safe for children. They are based on anchored points and do not require a headset. Which means your child will not have to move around to experience it and will have full visibility at all times.
What advantages does W5GO™ offer?
Resourcefulness – it is a properly researched selection of essential information on important topics for the upbringing of a child
Availability – the information and learning materials are readily available to the child on demand with the use of a Smartphone
Evolution – W5Go Project subscribes to the Wiki notion for collaborative development. Teachers and specialists in child education are invited to give us feedback and to contribute to the development of W5Go Project.
Currently, we have 14 applications available across several platforms. All are free to download, free from advertisements, no internet required and have no in-app purchases. Our vision is to create 100 episodes “Chapters” of W5Go so that children everywhere have the chance to learn English and experience AR/VR technology.
