E-Blocks is an innovative, research-based method for teaching English as a Second Language. The intuitive character of the E-Blocks panel makes it easy for students of all skill levels to interact. By connecting the panel to a computer, children identify letters and spell words by placing palm-sized blocks into the sensory pockets. Animated characters and full-colour graphics motivate students (ages 4-10). The product offers a variety of exercises and high-quality voice recordings that give students the opportunity to work on their pronunciation, based on authentic accents (US or UK).
