Acquisition of knowledge through sight and sound is reshaping how children and adults alike learn to read. Developing language skills in a natural way and exposing the student to the linguistic variation opens new horizons in his/her language development. A speaker or writer will use different linguistic forms on different occasions. Most of this variation is highly systematic: the choices in pronunciation, morphology, word choice, and grammar are made depending on a number of non-linguistic factors. The choice of words and grammar one uses are dictated by the purpose of communication. What better way to learn this than through many different books, illustrated with various scenarios and topics.
Enjoyable and effortless training is the key to effective development of language skills. We build on students’ digital-nativeness and their ability to acquire knowledge in new ways, motivating them even further to learn how to read!
eKidz.eu offers instructions in four languages: German, English, Spanish and Russian.
The reading program is subscription-based and offered to both private users and institutions (schools).
