We are an e-shop for educational tools for language learning. We believe that learning should be fun, so we offer a collection of toys, games, audio CDs and books for kids and adults, for multilingual or monolingual families.
Our expat experience has shown us how important it is to feel accepted and to accept others. In our globalized and modern society, empathy and cultural flexibility are must-have skills. Speaking more than one language increases the appreciation of the richness of different cultural values.
We all have playful instincts. Remember as a child how play just came naturally? Play and learning go hand-in-hand, so we can use our own resources to have fun, interact with others and the world and grow. Play is the first activity for children, but the role of parents is to be involved in their children' s play. And let's face it, as adults, we like to play too! It's vital for problem solving, creativity and relationships.
One of the key elements of social intelligence is the verbal fluency and the ability to communicate. Speaking foreign languages is a vital instrument to get along well with others and to get them cooperate with you, especially when you are an expat. As Nelson Mandela said: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”
