eBooks by Languages BULK LICENCES

The Kitabu dual-language ebook Library is the world's largest interactive ebook range and growing. Every book has audio in the Home Language (eg Arabic, Polish, etc) and in the School language (English or German or Swedish or Norwegian. More School Languages will be added) There are videos, teacher’s notes, word highlight and activities. For school inspectors or evidence of pupil engagement statistics are also collated for further reporting.
 

 
Each ebook contains text and narration in both languages, making the stories ideal for those new to English or learning another language. The titles in our ebooklub can be purchased individually or as a collective, grouped by language.

Additionally all ebooks contain follow-on activities including audio flash cards, matching pairs, label the parts, sequencing the story and a video questionnaire. An animated video of each story is provided in English with teachers notes available online for ideas and storyboards.

EBOOKS FOR INDIVIDUALS

What are dual language books in %1?

Dual language books in %1 (or DLBs for short, as they are sometimes known) are books in which the whole book is written in two languages throughout, in as close a translation as possible. In many cases, the content of the dual language book or story is written in one language on one side of the open book, and the %1 language on the other side. The pictures allow you to see the %1 language used in context, as well as breaking up the text. In recent years, however, improved computer technology means that electronic dual language books, or ebooks, have appeared, meaning language learners can dip into libraries on computer, tablet, and Smartphone. In some cases, the dual language book is also accompanied by sound files in %1, so that not only can learners see the words, they can also hear the correct pronunciation. You could argue that dictionaries are dual language books, although in practice most dual language books tell a story or impart information in %1. You may also sometimes hear them described in %1 as parallel texts although these are also sometimes used to transpose an older type of language into modern words, as with Chaucer or medieval French.
