How Our Stories Work

Every month, you’ll receive a box containing a beautifully illustrated storybook and a variety of complementary resources. Each story begins in English.
One by one, words from your child’s new language are gradually introduced. The context and illustrations make the meaning of each word instantly clear.
As the story progresses, these words develop into whole phrases, whole sentences and eventually whole pages in your child’s new language.

It’s kind of the “hidden vegetables” approach to language learning and I love it!

Working on my #spanish activity with @onethirdstories! I love these books!

Loving her Spanish lessons @onethirdstories. What a great concept and the activities really help to keep the new words we’ve learned fresh in mind.

We’ve been testing the @onethirdstories subscription boxes – a fun and engaging way for kids to learn foreign languages.

@bearandfoxblog

We’ve been reading the @onethirdstories books alot recently. She’s been really enjoying learning the French words. Wish I’d managed to pick up another language when I was young.
