How does your child learn English with this book? Discover English with Ben & Bella is based on the new scientific discovery: “immersive learning”. ”Immersion” means “diving in”, and with “At the Zoo”, your child will dive into the English language. Your child will first learn a special set of easy to understand words that can be grasped just by looking at the pictures in the book. Each word appears three times on the page: once as part of the illustrations, in the easy-to-read text, and once again as a “picture dictionary” word below the text. The method in action: turn to page 17. You’ll see a giraffe pictured in the illustration. You’ll read the word in the story text, which attaches a descriptive phrase to the word “long neck”. And you’ll find a picture of a giraffe all by itself below, which is clearly labeled, and which you and your child can point to while learning the word. As the English skills of your child improve, he or she will be able to understand the complete sentence: “Gerald the giraffe has a long neck.” The included Video-Audio-Book will help your child to learn the picture dictionary words though total sight and sound immersion in the book. Enjoy reading to your child, have your child enjoy watching the program, and see that enjoyment turn into real progress.
