Why does it work?


Zapatoons is not an intuition or a logic process. This method it´s validated by multiple authors and theoretical foundations in linguistics acquisition processes, phonetics, and behavioral psychology.

If you want to know more about this and concepts like "affective filter" or "second language acquisition" (Krashen 2003) or the study about accents and "phonological deafness" ( Troubetzkoy, N.S. 1973) or early learning ( Dupoux, E. y Peperkamp, S. 29002) and the influence of visual media ( Danan 2004), you can follow this link:

We also want to give you some essential information on top of this scientific theories, that maybe helps you understand better the massive advantages in using  Zapatoons.


  1. Number  of hours of exposure to the native language.


Two boys or girls share sitting during their school years. One of them uses Zapatoons, the other doesn´t. What happens?

Now it´s up to you if your son or daughter is the one on the right or the one on the left.

2. how do we learn our native language?

graphics on the usual learning process:

0.5 years old listening

at 3 we start talking

at 6 we start writing, study grammar

Why are we bent in doing it backwards with a foreign language?

3. How is English learnt in countries like Finland, Sweden, Slovenia or Greece?

UE studies show much better data in those countries than in  Spain, France or Italy.

Did you know that in Finland they don´t start learning English until the middle of Primary ( 8 years old) and only 3 hours per week? Did you know that there is almost no English academies in Finland?. Then how is it possible that the whole population speaks an almost perfect English?. It´s very easy, simply they don´t dub to Finnish the TV contents, which are almost all in their original language, so in English! Just what Zapatoons proposes!
