Learners are surrounded with visual, aural and contextual language, modeled on the way we all learned out first language. Throughout the stories, activities and games in MUZZY Online, vocabulary and grammar are presented in new contexts. MUZZY’s multi-sensory, multilayered communication works powerfully and naturally. The unique MUZZY design is effective for visual/spatial, verbal, kinesthetic, musical and logical/mathematical learners."
