Lesley Beth has wide experience of helping ESL children achieve rapid English Success by focusing on singing and music to create a anxiety-free learning environment.
Says Lesley Beth:
"I've taught hundreds of ESL children, mostly boat people, arriving from almost every country in the world.
They varied widely in their background education. Many were scarred from experiences with pirates, high seas and deaths.
In terms of family support, few of the parents could help them adjust to new schools and the challenges of making friends while also learning English.
From this, I realized the importance of creating happy learning environments enabling ESL students to 'open-up' and
engage in regular classroom settings.
By creating a relaxed, enjoyable
environment, Jazzles Voconics provides the
scaffolding for true ESL inclusion and all the
opportunities to develop the skills necessary
for oral language and reading success.
With free trials, you have nothing to loose by giving your students the opportunity to try Jazzles.
I hope you do and I will help you in whatever way I can.!

Research shows that if subtitles are on the screen, they are 'read' just like text in a book.
ESL children have enhanced comprehension by connecting the 'Matching Captions' to the visual explanation. Every time children sing and follow the words, they are intuitively learning reading skills while exercising both sides of their brain.

In Indonesia, where I teach EFL, the

spelling and sounds.

Jazzles Animations will be very helpful for the
EFL learners to recognize the sounds and
the corresponding letters in English,"
