Noah Comprende is a web-original series about a 9-year-old boy visiting his grandmother in a community where no one speaks English. Noah is trying to learn Spanish, but sometimes gets it wrong. In each animated video, a misunderstanding launches a comic adventure for Noah and his pet mouse Pequeno. With Pequeno’s help, Noah always manages to solve the problems he’s created, learning Spanish in the process.
Although kids — like Noah — may not understand the Spanish dialogue, they can comprehend the story told through rich visual storytelling. Each video features opportunities for kids to roll their cursor over objects on the screen to hear the Spanish translation.
Additionally, the website features:
- Three different vocabulary-driven, arcade-style games that reinforce learning and help build vocabulary
- How Do You Say…?, a game that helps kids learn common expressions in Spanish, like greetings and things to say in a restaurant
- Hands-on activities developed in partnership with El Museo del Barrio and additional resources for kids, parents, and teachers can be found here:
