Get back to school with Red, Chuck and Bomb as papagei.com’s “Learn English with Angry Birds” courses are now available in a new mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
First launched last February as a web-based service, papagei.com’s Learn English with Angry Birds program includes 45 interactive video courses with subtitles in ten different language combinations, plus a digital vocabulary and pronunciation coach to playfully learn English. Tailored to the needs of young digital natives, the app combines the colorful characters from Rovio’s Angry Birds Toons series with innovative video learning technology by papagei.com.
The app also contains grammar exercises and an interactive coach which analyzes pronunciation word for word. The combination of original videos with bilingual subtitles and award-winning learning tools guarantees fast learning success and motivated pupils on a long-term basis. The Learn English with Angry Birds app includes interfaces for German, Turkish, Spanish, Polish, Arabic, Russian and Chinese-speaking learners.
The app also provides a detailed report of study time, to allow pupils, teachers and parents to measure learning success.
“The interactive Angry Birds videos are entertaining, the language used is not too complicated and the episodes have the perfect length to complete short practice sequences after school,” says Dr. Michaela Meier, CEO of papagei.com.
“The partnership with papagei.com brings us together with a great digital brand, and we are delighted to be able to help support the aspirations of young language learners,” adds Alex Lambeek, Rovio’s Chief Commercial Officer.
