Online ESL Kids Curriculum

About is an interactive ESL curriculum for kids. The curriculum follows the adventures of a witch named Penny and her little brother, Andy, as they travel around the world and to distant lands. Penny and her friends, from around the world, attend a magic elementary school where they learn about many different subjects, including English. In this fantasy word, animals talk and fanciful characters come to life.

All the lessons are gamified with interactive functions with lots of animations. The curriculum is structured and builds on previous knowledge as the lessons advance. The characters are voiced by American and Canadian actors.
