Early Start


Use with a whiteboard / data-projector or a regular PC / Mac!

This fantastic resource is great for helping children to start to read in a new language. It features the full story read by a native German speaker and displayed in "big book" format, live on your whiteboard or PC. The disc also includes many interactive activites and electronic flashcards for further learning opportunities.

Children will have fun joining in with the story, discovering that they can work out what is happening, even with unfamiliar language. The games and activities help them to begin to read and pronounce new words with confidence and they can even try writing their very own story!

In this title, monkey's hungry but he can't find his banana. Will he be tempted to try some of the other foods his jungle friends offer him?

This title is particularly useful for teaching German vocab relating to fruits and jungle animals
