We are always on the lookout for resources to assist our students as they learn second and third languages. For more than 30 years, Muzzy — a fuzzy, green monster with lots of friends — has taught conversational language to millions of children around the world.
Students can access Muzzy’s language lessons, games and music through online subscriptions — so please note that fees apply.
Muzzy helps young people learn Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, German, Italian, English and Korean through a series of videos created by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Students are encouraged to “see and listen, say and learn.” It’s a process that could help them pick up 1,200 vocabulary words and grammar and conversation basics in the language they want to study. Muzzy BBC even has a homeschool curriculum for parents who don’t need to speak Spanish to help their children learn it.
