Educational institutions and parents across the globe can now purchase Tales2go subscriptions for their students and children.
Bethesda, MD – November 17, 2015 – Tales2go Inc. announces today it has activated its service on a worldwide basis. Previously, Tales2go was only available in the U.S. and Canada.
Tales2go supports the development of literacy skills during a student’s most critical early childhood and elementary school years. Repeated exposure to sophisticated words, spoken fluently and in context, drives vocabulary acquisition and retention, which is a key component of reading proficiency. Reading proficiency, in turn, is critical to academic success. Yet most students lack such an exposure and have a limited vocabulary. The Tales2go service easily adds a listening component to classroom reading instruction and is used in some of the largest and most progressive districts in the U.S., including Los Angeles Unified School District (California), Broward County Schools (Florida), Berkeley Unified School District (California) and Heartland Area Education Agency (Iowa).
“We’re excited to achieve this important milestone in terms of worldwide access,” said Tales2go Co-Founder and CEO, William Weil. “We have had non-U.S. schools and parents reaching out to us for years, and are finally able to accommodate their interest. We also have a particular interest in partnering with international schools, which have adopted the Common Core State Standards, which elevates listening to a skill equivalent to reading, writing and speaking.”
Tales2go works with leading audio book publishers ranging from Recorded Books, Scholastic, Weston Woods Studios, Blackstone Audio, Oxford University Press and Oasis Audio, as well as established storytellers such as Bill Harley, Willy Claflin, Regi Carpenter and Odds Bodkin.
