What is the idea behind alphaben?

smart reading for kids.

alphaben is a reading app for children that increases both reading motivation and reading comprehension. Each child gets custom book recommendations based on their personal interests and their individual reading level. Each book includes child-friendly word explanations and exciting quizzes to improve reading skills. Children are rewarded for their reading performance with points and reading badges.

Individual book recommendations

With the help of a reading test and a questionaire about interests, we suggest suitable books for your child. This makes reading fun!

Understanding words better

A central problem for children when reading is that they do not understand words and thus quickly lose the desire to read. By explaining words in a way that is appropriate for children, we help your child to stay in the flow of reading.

Understanding content better

We use interesting quizzes to help your child check whether they have actually understood what they have read.

Books cost money

Many books cost a lot of money. We give your child access to the most popular children's books and you only pay a monthly subscription fee. Cancel at any time. Try it for free. This is how you read today...!

Safety First

Together with the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence and SYNDIKAT7, we have designed alphaben according to the latest and safest technology standards. Data protection and data security are our top priority. Do you have any questions? Please feel free to contact us!
