A Unique Programme – Why it Works

Learn & Play Series 1 uses a distinct structure which consists of two key elements: storybooks (with audio) and animated role play games (videos). Both are supported by activity books.

Each story is connected to a role play game. This means that the vocabulary covered in a story gets reinforced in a role play game.

The activity books for both the storybooks and the role play games are designed to extend and consolidate learning in a fun and productive way.

A storybook and a role play game, both followed by activities in the activity books, represent each a lesson of 15/20 minutes. For samples, please see here.
