“Language is a theater. The words are the actors.” Denis Diderot, 18th Century Philosopher
In this “visual learning environment”, THE LANGUAGE THEATER literally “acts out” Diderot’s theme. Our theater director, Theo the Grammarian, introduces our exciting parts–of-speech “actors” who take the stage one-by-one to show and tell us what they do and how they interact. The “actors” perform via dynamic, whimsical illustrations that work seamlessly with the text and make us smile as we learn the nuts and bolts of the English language through these "theatrical” picture lessons. Lessons are followed by a few short exercises and a summary.
"THE LANGUAGE THEATER immediately gets on a child's wavelength with excellent character illustrations. There is a spirit of play that delivers the message, and this buoyancy is sustained from start to finish. Then, the balance between the significance of grammar and the fun pictorial examples is exceptional. Children can assimilate the concepts much more readily vs. a text-only approach." (Amazon Review)
