LittleBooks/LibrosPequeños: Interactive bilingual books designed for second language learning

Project by

Project Year 
2014
LittleBooks are interactive books uniquely designed to help people learn second languages. The language-learning mobile-based platform supports second language acquisition through engagement with multimodal and multilingual books. LittleBooks helps to address two common challenges that many language-learners face when consume media in their target language: “getting lost” and the lack of opportunities to hear the language at a level that is conducive to their learning. LittleBooks allows students to engage with written and audio content in meaningful ways by providing in-context scaffolds like text support, a learner’s dictionary and audio narration.
