Creating experiences for children is something we love doing, so when we got the chance to help schoolkids learn languages we jumped out of gleeful joy.
Hola, bonjour, nǐ hǎo and much more is what we
learnt working on this project with the
clever people at BBC Learning.
The idea was to create a set of tools to make learning languages more fun, so we created a series of games that help the kids test their knowledge of Spanish, French and Mandarin.
The games are built in different ways in order to focus on different areas of each language – grammar, syntax, vocabulary
– and they all feature funny families of different nationalities. Grandpa dressed as an illusionist is our favourite!
The theme of the entire project is paper dolls and cardboard theatre, so
along with the other tools
we created a step-by-step document to build you own theatre!
