PARENT GUIDE

Kuaderno is a virtual learning platform that helps students aged 5 to 16 practice and learn English through readings, exercises and games. Hundreds of thousands of students are strengthening their skills in English with Kuaderno by practicing different areas of language such as reading, writing, listening comprehension, vocabulary and grammar.

#1 The Kuaderno Method

There are four main sections for students in Kuaderno:

 

-The Bookroom is a virtual library with over 300 audiobooks organized in 26 levels of difficulty.

The Trainer contains over 30,000 ejercicios that have been designed to learn and practice English like a game, with sections for vocabulary, grammar, listening comprehension, reading comprehension and writing.

-On the Classwall, students can exchange messages with their classmates. Teachers can also read and respond.

-The Passport section makes a game out of reading books and doing exercises. Students have a mission to visit cities virtually and buy virtual souvenirs.

Visit our help section for students to learn more about how each section of Kuaderno works.

We recommend that children use Kuaderno at least twice a week for about 15 minutes. If they have more time, it’s extremely beneficial to use Kuaderno every day. In just 15 minutes a day, your children can read a book in the Bookroom and complete a quiz, or do an exercise or two in the Trainer. They will earn points and virtual coins as they complete activities, which makes studying fun.

#2 Our 5 Tips for Parents

 

  1. Access Kuaderno with your child the first time. Show your child how to click on the “Play” button, how to turn the page, how to pause and re-start the recording, how to re-play the recording by clicking on any word in the book, how to take (and re-take) the quiz and how to change the avatar. Congratulate your child on the points s/he earns in the first session.

  2. Encourage your child(ren) to use Kuaderno twice a week for about 15 minutes. Ask them how many points and coins they earned and motivate them to read books or do exercises in the Trainer.

  3. Register as a parent with your email address and learn how to get the most out of the parent area.

  4. Let your child(ren) use Kuaderno like a game. They can “play” anywhere (in the car, at the beach, waiting for the dentist…). Kuaderno works on any computer, mobile device or tablet with an Internet connection.

  5. Encourage your child(ren) to write messages on the Classwall and to complete the mission in Passport.
