Learn & Play

Learn & Play (Level 1) – Storybooks, Videos & Activity Books

Learn & Play is the first level of our language programme for 4 to 9 years old. The resources are available through two three-month subscriptions. Each subscription includes twelve language storybooks with audio, twelve videos, six activity books, three colouring books and three teacher/parent guides.

The structure of our 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 courses 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.

Our resources are available in English and are suitable for use by teachers as well as by parents.

Language Storybooks: Developing Language & Communication Skills

Our lift-the-flap storybooks with audio are interactive and designed to engage children in the learning process.

Each storybook contains twenty-two to twenty-four pages and includes a clear learning template.  Children go through the story with the physical book which is supported by an audio file.

A lesson lasts 15-20 minutes. It includes listening to a story once or twice, repeating the functional vocabulary, and doing the two activities in the activity book.

Please click here for a sample of Storybook 1 – Arthur the Elf and Friends. You will discover the first few pages of the story.

In this first book, the topic covered is Greetings and Introductions. Children learn the functional vocabulary through repetition and various interactions between the characters of the story.

Animated Games (videos): Consolidating the Topics Covered in the Storybooks

The animated role play games are designed to practice the functional vocabulary covered in the language storybooks. Each video lasts around two minutes and is to be used in conjunction with an activity book.

A lesson lasts 15-20 minutes. It includes viewing a video once or twice, and practicing with two structured and fun activities in the activity book.

In this sample, you can see the characters Jane and Leo having fun greeting and introducing themselves using different names. This role play game is designed to consolidate the first story, Arthur the Elf and Friends.

Activity Books: Reinforcing the Topics Covered in the Storybooks and Videos

The activity books provide fun and structured activities designed to practice the topics covered in the language storybooks and role play games.

Children learning English as second  language (4-9 years old) develop solid listening and speaking skills. The activities enable them to master vocabulary for everyday situations with confidence.

English speakers (4 and 6 years old) develop strong language and early literacy skills. The activities support the development of vocabulary and critical thinking skills.
