"For more than 25 years I've been teaching children with english as an additional dialect; special needs, behaviour issues, low socio-economic backgrounds, refugees, but all have benefited from Jazzles. It is a joyful way to learn - they don't realise Jazzles is teaching them!" - Teacher
Based on a scientific order, every unit begins with an animated, alliterative, reading–song. It's fun, oral english and reading practice! When children simultaneously SEE, SMILE, HEAR, MOVE and SING (engaged visually, aurally and kinetically -VAK), They remember EVERYTHING!
Amazingly, within the 26 Jazzles lyrics, are 77% of the most important words in contemporary English as well as over 70% of high frequency/ sight words.
While most learning programs stop at the pedagogy, Lesley Beth knows optimal learning occurs with happy children in an engaging environment. Visual and Performing Arts activities develop vital non-cognitive skills including collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity and innovation.
Jazzles lyrics ignite imaginations and conversations so children absorb and extend English vocabulary by joining in group singing, art, craft, drama and musical performance as karaoke stars!
