Rovio launches Angry Birds video courses to teach English

Courses have been designed for learners from eight-years-old and above, with video content that is based on the Angry Birds Toons animated series.

Rovio Entertainment has teamed up with video language platform Papagei.com to provide English language learners with a range of video courses, led by the Angry Birds team.

Courses have been designed for learners from eight-years-old and above, with video content that is based on the Angry Birds Toons animated series.

Each of the videos are available in Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Russia and Poland, and feature matching exercises on vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.  

Dr. Michaela Meier, CEO of Papagei.com, said: “The combination of Rovio’s brand and content and Papagei’s video learning technology results in modern language learning courses that match the environment of young digital natives.

“The Angry Birds clips are short, entertaining and at just the right language level for young learners. In addition to our product line with CNN International for adults, with Rovio we now have a strong partner for our younger users.”

Alex Lambeek, CCO at Rovio Entertainment, added: “Engaging with the imagination is a key to learning, and Angry Birds is a great property for doing just that.

“The partnership with Papagei.com brings us together with a great digital brand, and we are delighted to be able to help support the aspirations of young language learners.”
