BrainPOP Rolls out BrainPOP ESL!

BrainPOP is proud to announce the newest addition to the BrainPOP family of learning products, BrainPOP ESL (www.brainpopesl.com).  In the BrainPOP tradition, this new program, designed to teach English to new learners of the language, features Moby and a new character, his friend Ben.  Their playful and humorous antics introduce the students to the natural sounds and structures of the English language by constantly weaving in new vocabulary and usage.  Eight interactive features that accompany each lesson help the students reinforce what they have learned as they expand their comprehension base.  Teachers will especially enjoy using BrainPOP ESL as it provides them with extensive resources and support, including lessons plans that will aid in integrating BrainPOP ESL into the classroom and the existing curriculum.

BrainPOP ESL will be available free of charge for a limited time as a beta product for teachers as well as students.  The online product will be updated continuously. This is an exciting time to check out a brand new product in its beta stage and share feedback which will influence its development.

    I just got a new NES student from the Ivory Coast. We tried the first lesson, and she loved it. “I like computer.” Our only criticism is that in the test, it is very difficult to understand the speaker when he says, “He is tall.” It sounds more like, “She is tall.” Both my student and I thought he said she, and we listened to it several times. Perhaps the pictures could be changed to help the students choose the correct answer.
    Again, thanks for BrainPop ESL! I use BrainPop and BrainPop Jr. with my ESL students anyway, but your new product is perfect for beginners!

    Hi Kathy,

    I was so happy to read your email! I know how frustrating it can be for students AND teachers when we have newcomers who don’t know any English. I love how BrainPOP ESL is a good resource for you, and your student is enjoying it. Keep up the good work, and keep us posted!
