Angry Birds commence teaching English
Rovio Entertainment has teamed up with video language platform papagei.com to provide a range of interactive video courses for English language learners.
Utilising video content based on the Angry Birds Toons animated series, the courses are tailored for learners aged eight and above.
The students watch videos with bilingual subtitles and matching exercises on vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.
“The combination of Rovio’s brand and content and papagei’s video learning technology results in modern language learning courses that match the environment of young digital natives,” says Dr. Michaela Meier, CEO at papagei.com. “The Angry Birds clips are short, entertaining and at just the right language level for young learners.”
Courses are currently available in Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Russia and Poland.
Additionally, the Angry Birds course offering in Germany also provides the opportunity to learn German in an Arabic-language environment. This initiative seeks to help newly arrived refugee children and young people from the Middle East with learning the local language.
