A Passport to Languages Series: English - Level 1

"Highly Recommended. This live-action series is divided into three levels. The first two levels take viewers to a classroom with a small group of children, a friendly custodian, a large puppet, and an energetic female teacher; the third level offers real-life situations. The entire series is lighthearted and has the feel of a PBS program." -School Library Journal
