This series combines original music and bilingual lyrics with the fun of live-action video adventure to introduce children to foreign language vocabulary. The song lyrics, printed on the television screen and simultaneously sounded out, alternate between English and the other language to provide instant word comprehension. Children can sing along to practice pronunciation. Subtitles are provided in both English and the featured language.

The accompanying teacherís guide, designed for both monolingual and bilingual teachers, provides reproducible student activity pages. The games and activities may be used to motivate students to pursue a foreign language or to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) while developing multicultural awareness.

Program of Studies:
World Language: Communicating, Cultures, Comparisons, Communities
English/Language Arts: Speaking, Listening, and Observing
