Learn & Play (Level 1) – Series 1
Learn & Play is the first level of our language programme for 4 to 9 years old. It is organised into two series of three parts each.
Series 1 offers twelve language storybooks (with audio), twelve animated role play games (videos), six activity books and three teacher/parent guides.
The sound for both the storybooks and role play games is recorded by native speakers allowing children to learn how to use native pronunciation.
In this first series, Arthur the Elf, the land of Lutinia’s storyteller, introduces us to three excited children. Edward, Henry and Anne, experience extraordinary adventures and share the valuable lessons they learn.
The programme is available in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. You will find on this page some samples of the English version of our storybooks, videos and activity books for Series 1 (Parts 1-3).
