How the material is organised

The ABC Games section is designed to teach young English learners their ABC's in a fun, interactive way.

There are 26 animals, one for each letter of the alphabet. While learning the ABCs, kids meet funny characters such as Andy Alligator, Rocky Raccoon or Zara Zebra. They help teach children about each letter, introduce some new English words that begin with the same letter, and invite to play word games.

Picture dictionaries

Each game unit starts with a mini-dictionary that introduces six new words through pictures and sounds. You play sound when click on a picture. Then these words reappear in the online games. It is a fun way to build vocabulary with young learners.
