Language Learning through Stories
The Tales of Arthur the Elf is a unique programme that immerses children in language learning from an early age. It was designed to capture a child’s imagination through storytelling.
The structure of the programme enables an immersive language teaching method. This makes it both ideal and successful for excelling a child in their mother tongue or building their foundations in a second language.
Unlike many language learning programmes which focus solely on teaching vocabulary, our educational materials focus on immersion in language but also literacy, cultural awareness, art, geography, history and more. This is truly unique and provides our youngest learners with an incredible head start with their future learning.
The programme can be used by both teachers and parents. It can be delivered within families or educational settings making learning a foreign language a natural part of early learning and development.

Arthur the Elf – Learn & Play is a course designed for children aged between 4 and 7 years old. It uses a distinct structure which consists in combining the following three resources we have created:
- A picture storybook (with audio): The vocabulary is organised around the main story and the learning pages.
- A picture role play book (with audio): The vocabulary covered in a storybook is reinforced with a role play game. The idea is to push children to reuse the vocabulary learned in another context.
- An activity book: After each storybook and each role play game, children are given activities to complete.
Arthur the Elf – Learn & Play
Learning with stories is immensely powerful. See here for really understanding why this is so. We also know that children who develop a love for reading in the early years excel in their education, not just in literacy, but across the curriculum.
Arthur the Elf – Learn & Play is a programme designed to boost vocabulary acquisition in the early years and primary. You can expect our course to:
- Increase and broaden a child’s vocabulary, including mathematical terms;
- Encourage the development of creativity and critical thinking skills;
- Develop cultural awareness and understanding.
