This is a collection of 29 titles, each having various dual language editions. The total number of editions is 475. This collection covers 37 languages with English and applies to children from 4 to 12. Each edition has 21 copies so that the collection is made up of over 8000 ebooks for use in every classroom as and when needed.
There are 21 users who can read all books, and any one book can be read simultaneously by them. Assuming that there are 7 year groups in a school and 3 classes in each year group, the total number of licenced users in this base collection is 21 users. Each book costs £0.04 per annum!
If a school wanted to increase the number of users, for example to allow parents to use the collection at home, the cost of an extra user licence is 50p per month or £1.50 per term.

Then all you do is enter read.mantralingua.com on the url of a computer, sign in, and the whole library is displayed. Search for any book or language and go. Each book exactly duplicates its printed book equivalent, but now by clicking the text, the reader can listen to the text - in Polish, Arabic, Bengali, Urdu... Therefore, even if someone does not read English, they can listen to the story page by page in their home language. They can also on any page click or tap the English and listen to the English with each word highlighed. There is also a video of the story, using the same words and pictures but played back as a video. There is extensive repetition of words and users can soon enjoy the rythmn of the language, with intonation and excitement. They experience the joy of speaking! The stories are well-known and will engage the reader, build their interest and encourage them to read or speak in English, page by page.
