BrainPOP ESL uses lively, engaging content to teach English to speakers of other languages. Lessons are built around animated movies and supporting features that reinforce vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, reading comprehension, and writing skills. New concepts are couched in everyday situations, adding context for learners and helping them master idiomatic and cultural nuances. Versatile and easy to use, BrainPOP ESL assumes no prior knowledge of English, and effectively addresses diverse learning styles.
BrainPOP ESL coordinates English grammar and vocabulary into cohesive, level-appropriate lessons. Each lesson contains an animated, three-part movie, composed of a story, an introduction to the new vocabulary, and an illustration of the relevant grammar topics. Eight engaging features accompany each movie, accommodating each student from the first steps of English language learning and beyond. The program acknowledges differentiated learning styles as each of the components works to teach a discrete topic, while reinforcing the fundamental concepts taught in the lesson, and continually broadening the English language base. This self-contained program expands the student’s knowledge of grammar and vocabulary in a systematic and linear fashion, constantly building on previously taught elements to reach designated assessable goals.
