Study Buddy is a next-generation smart speaker that brings English language education to life. Designed specifically for students aged 3 to 6, it delivers content relevant to their language skill level. Based on characters from Education First’s Small Stars Course, Study Buddy lets young learners explore songs, stories & games in multiple fun ways. Ten NFC cards support voice interaction with a proprietary speech testing engine. Content and routines can be managed via the parental app. With the wellbeing and comfort of students paramount, twin monochromatic OLED eyes allow for visual feedback while preventing exposure to disruptive blue light emissions.
