As a language-learning tool, it facilitates language acquisition through complete immersion. Young learners gain solid listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and develop cultural awareness.

Our educational materials are inclusive. The storybooks, role play books, activity books, flash cards and videos use a dyslexia-friendly font, black text on light coloured background, short sentences, larger line spacing, and the usage of bold for emphasis.

The programme can be used by teachers, parents and carers in a classroom or home setting.

A Story-Based Language Programme

(available in English, French and Spanish)

Arthur the Elf – Learn & Play is a course designed to appeal to a young child’s innate creativity and imagination. Children are encouraged to develop their language and literacy skills.

The programme was designed to be multilingual with each language being taught in its cultural context.

The stories involve three young children and their magical friends. Anne, Henry and Edward embark on magical adventures and share the many lessons they learn.

The stories promote self-confidence and self-awareness in early childhood. Through different scenarios, children are encouraged to take initiative and develop an appreciation of the value of teamwork. They also develop critical thinking skills and become problem-solvers.

A Comprehensive Programme

Arthur the Elf – Learn & Play is a course organised around two Series. Each Series offers nine learning bundles.
