BrainPOP en Español
New York, NY (March 6, 2006) - BrainPOP (www.brainpop.com), the leading producer of animated educational content for grades K-8, announced today the launch of a new Spanish language site, BrainPOP en Español. This new site uses BrainPOP's popular format to present award winning content in Science, Math, Social Studies, Language Arts, Health and Technology, in Spanish.
"BrainPOP en Español will be an essential tool for teachers in the United States striving to meet the needs of a dual language classroom. Spanish-language students will now be able to keep up with class material, even while still learning the English language," said Avraham Kadar, M.D., Chairman and CEO of BrainPOP.
By offering both English and Spanish versions of the content, BrainPOP hopes to be an integral learning tool for Spanish-speaking students not only in the United States, but also in South America and Spain. BrainPOP en Español is the company's first foray into the International market. Plans are underway to localize BrainPOP content around the world.
