Reading helps children’s emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development. In addition, it stimulates imagination and creativity. Other benefits are that it increases vocabulary, improves language skills, and promotes concentration and discipline.
Word Master Publisher has just launched an exclusive series of children’s books that can be used as a resource for Portuguese teachers to teach Portuguese as a second language (PSL).
In the “Terra do Troca-Letras” series, the characters travel through Brazil’s five regions, exploring Brazilian culture while playing with changing letters and learning new words. The series is designed for both teachers and students. It aims to explore phonemes common in Brazilian Portuguese but absent in other languages, such as English and Spanish, beyond the alphabet. For example, Ç, QU, GU, LH, and NH, in addition to tilde, acute and circumflex accents. The series also aims to explore the most common phonetic pairs: P and B, V and B, D and B, G and J, to help children understand these differences playfully!
Come aboard on this trip to the “Land of Troca-Letras”!
