Abstract

In recent years, with the increasing emphasis on children's education by parents, the number of educational apps has been rapidly growing, especially in the field of English learning. This study aims to integrate the relevant concepts of flow theory to analyze English learning apps available in the market. Taking the ABC Reading children's learning app as an example, this research combines the three elements of flow theory—clear goals, accurate and timely feedback, and the balance between challenge and skill—to improve the design of the app and enhance the user experience for children.
