The Boy Who Cried Wolf, a children’s fairy tale favourite, comes to life in this unique learning app, combining professional HD video storytelling and fun educational activities to help young learners of English across the globe, improve their language in a fun, engaging and memorable way.
Stories are an invaluable tool in engaging children with language and encouraging discussion; developing speaking and listening skills and they are a great motivation for reading and writing- even for very young children. The full HD video of our professional story teller, along with beautifully-illustrated scenes from the story, provide young learners everywhere with a new and exciting way to improve their English through this classic fairy-tale.
Our extensive research has shown that seeing the story teller’s face really helps the children understand the meaning of words, even more than just hearing or reading them. We’ve also provided a wide choice of interactive activities to bring storytelling to life in this age of mobile learning.
Ideally suited to learners aged between 3 and 6 years old (with some knowledge of English), this ‘big screen’ app can be used at home, at school… in fact you can take our storyteller with you wherever you go.
You can watch the movie again and again and enjoy learning how to tell stories with just your voice and body language. Each time they watch this lovely story learners can improve their fluency and language ability.
