From the Findings of the Jury
The Digita Jury was impressed by the seasonal theme: The Story of Santa Claus was presented in a beautifully designed study package, which gives children in primary school-age-one access to the English language. The software is designed so that children can deal with this alone. The children can determine the order, their pace and scope of the tasks to be processed themselves. The Story of Santa Claus is well-designed, has varied exercises and games are used to strengthen the English words and phrases. The tasks are designed and presented in such a way that they can be collected from the children intuitively and then independently solved, even if they have not understood the verbal instruction. The user interface is designed so as to be child-friendly and clear. The cartoon characters speak directly to the age group.
