If your kids or yourself would like to learn the basics of the English language in a fun and engaging manner, this is the course for you or your children. The four characters, Lenny, Paco, Alex and Maya will teach you through fun-filled animations picturing everyday situations.
This course includes twenty-six short animation videos that explore different themes, from shapes and colours to means of transportation, things found around the house, different moods or days, months and seasons. The videos are divided in six categories: The basics, Useful words, Express yourself, At home, The outside world and Nature.
There are approximately 50 minutes of animation to watch. Students should therefore be able to complete the course in approximately 1 to 3 hours.
This introduction course was designed by ESL teachers with decades of experience in and outside the classroom teaching and tutoring kids at the elementary and high school levels. These materials have been used successfully with children of different ages.

I am a High School teacher with 15 years of experience. I've taught everything from General Science to AP Chemistry, English, basic computer programming and more.
I started my digital journey by creating videos of all my Chemistry lessons for my students and have received countless thanks for those online resources. I've been a pioneer in my community by taking part in a Smart Board initiative ten years ago and by training my colleagues on how to best use them as well as being the first teacher to flip my classroom within my School Board.
I like to push myself and always improve upon my teaching skills and best practices. I find teaching to be a very satisfying experience as it allows me to share my knowledge in creative ways and interact with a multiplicity of people and also learn from them in the process.
