ABDO zooms in on animals again – ¡En Español! – with Animales
April 18, 2016
“We are very excited to continue to build our Abdo Zoom platform,” said Monte Kuehl, National Sales Director. “Animales is sure to delight students and educators alike, blending basic animal information with Spanish language learning.”
Animales — launching April 25 — is the third of several Abdo Zoom databases that allow young readers to practice online research in a safe, secure environment. Features include read-aloud text, highlighted glossary terms, streaming videos, and printable activities and games. The puzzles, crafts, games, and coloring activities reinforce learned vocabulary and concepts through a disguised learning approach.
A special added feature for subscribers with both the Animales and Animals databases is a toggle button to easily switch between Spanish and English.
“We’re especially excited about the toggle feature,” Paul Abdo, Editor-in-Chief said. “It’s great for improving vocabulary and comprehension for new language learners."
Animales is available for purchase directly through the ABDO website or through a local ABDO representative. ABDO offers multi-year and multi-database discounts on Abdo Zoom subscriptions.
