It has been a long winter here in Massachusetts, but we have been busy at Breaking the Barrier. We have some exciting news to share.
Digital Textbooks are now available for all platforms for only $29.99!
Our new premium digital eBooks work on virtually any device including Chromebooks and iPads. Like our iBooks textbooks, our premium eBooks include hundreds of hours of
embedded audio, stunning images, video, teaching capsules, and engaging student exercises that provide immediate feedback to learners.
With EdTech’s Shelfit eReader tools, teachers can extend these books even further by customizing them to meet their specific needs. Practically any
type of content or media can be embedded and organized directly within these eBooks. Quizzes, images, YouTube videos, hyperlinks, audio files, and worksheets can quickly be added using the
simple-to-use overlay feature. Our entire collection of Spanish, French, and English titles are available as eBooks on Shelfit Reader for $29.99.
We are thrilled to be recognized with two product awards this month – in two different markets.
In the fall we announced the launch of LOL: Learn Other Languages, a new and innovative iMessage app that enables language learners to strengthen
their vocabulary, grammar, and communication skills by sending and responding to conversation starters. We are pleased to be selected as a finalist in the category of “Best
Language Learning Solution” in the EdTech Digest Awards. Stay tuned to see if we win!
In the meantime, learn more and try out our fun new apps!
We’re delighted and honored to announce that we have won the Best Homeschooling Resources & Curriculum award
from HowToHomeschool.net. With hundreds of nominations and
rigorous criteria to win, we’re deeply grateful for this recognition and remain committed to supporting the homeschooling community with our language learning products.
We are believers in service learning and want to share information about a local, Boston-based non-profit, United Planet, which leads service learning trips across the globe for students, teachers, families and other groups. For sixteen years
they have provided gap year, summer, alternative spring break, one and two semester programs and can customize certain programs to your needs. We believe in their mission: “United Planet
unlocks your potential as a global citizen, empowering you to create a more peaceful, cohesive and sustainable world. With partnerships all over the world, United Planet fosters cross-cultural
understanding and addresses shared challenges to unite the world in a community beyond borders.” There are a number of great trips planned for this summer.
