Dual-language resources for bilingual children and parents
and for the multi-lingual classroom
Why do we call it a PENpal?
Because this award-winning digital companion will introduce you to learning material in a uniquely customizable way; your own. Touch the pen to a book, poster, learning chart, or sticky label and you will hear the content read to you. You can download pre-recorded material from our freelink software in over 52 languages, or record your own narrative, music or sound effects.
What child isn’t fascinated by the sound of their own voice? Or wouldn’t like to hear a relative or a treasured friend reading to them? PENpal makes learning both personal and fun.
The technology behind PENpal is sophisticated, but we’ve kept the customer experience simple. All PENpals are portable, durable, and easy to use. They work by detecting micro bar code links that are wirelessly connected to audio files in your computer. With 4GBs you have over 250 hours of audio content, and an endless combination of possibilities.
From personal reading to classroom education, this innovative audio-visual tool interweaves a revolutionary learning technology with a creative experience you wont soon forget. Welcome to PENpal.
