Growing Minds Media crosses the digital divide with new MUZZY BBC Pen Drive & DVD Bundle

BARRINGTON, Ill. - Jan. 11, 2018 - s4story -- Growing Minds Media today announced that it has launched its new MUZZY BBC Pen Drive & DVD Bundle to bring its world-class language learning program to children on the less fortunate side of the global digital divide.

Developed by the British Broadcasting Corporation, MUZZY BBC has helped millions of children worldwide become bilingual. MUZZY's video story captivates children and immerses them in a new language, mimicking the way they learned to speak their native tongue. The MUZZY BBC Pen Drive & DVD Bundle brings language learning to every child, no matter where they are and without the need to rely on an Internet connection. The Pen Drive provides everything available in the online MUZZY Club – the video stories, games, recording studio and more – and the DVD contains all the episodes in Muzzy in Gondoland and Muzzy Comes Back.

"MUZZY BBC uses appealing cartoon characters that tell a video story to teach children a new language using a natural immersion approach," said Richard Flower, Vice President and General Manager of Growing Minds Media.  "In 2018, billions of people still do not have access to a high-speed Internet connection.  With our new Pen Drive & DVD Bundle, we will be able to bring the wonders of MUZZY BBC to the children around the world who need it most."

The MUZZY BBC Pen Drive & DVD Bundle will be available in British and American English, and Castilian Spanish. The bundle allows children, at home or in school, to participate in the MUZZY video story, Vocabulary Builder, and hundreds of games and activities, many designed for the non-reader. MUZZY's internal curriculum, which follows the British Council guidelines and the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, is accessible through the MUZZY Classroom Binder which can be purchased separately.  Growing Minds Media also intends to build a customizable publishing program, in which users can select their own target and tutor languages, using pen drive technology. Collectively, these products offer a powerful offline language learning solution to families and schools around the world.
