This program helps young viewers learn about anxiousness and patience as they are introduced to basic English expressions, vocabulary and sentence structures.

Episodes include:

Niki For President

Young learners practice phrases like "Hurry up!" "Speed up!" and "Don't stop!" Tingo helps Niki feel less nervous about the school election by teaching her a song about ... hopping! The verb "to need" is reviewed, along with the familiar expression "Where is my...?" Children are introduced to the letter "H" and to new vocabulary, including "hop," "nervous" and "shoes." Includes Grover presenting "fast" and "slow."

Snack Attack

Tingo and Niki are hungry and would like to eat the pizza that has arrived for an upcoming birthday party! But Niki's cousin, Jake, tells them not to eat the pizza until the party starts. Children learn to construct sentences using the words "don't" and "no." Common expressions such as "Happy birthday!" and "That smells good," and vocabulary like "eat," "pizza" and "cake" are also introduced. Kids are also presented with the number "18." Includes the Don't Eat the Pizza song!

Created by Sesame Workshop, these programs are designed to teach English as a Second Language. Tingo, an energetic Muppet, who only recently arrived in this country, introduces conversational English through adventures with his friend, Niki, a typical teenage girl. The program features two 13-minute segments and follows a simple storyline that uses humor, physical action and music to appeal to children while introducing basic English expressions, vocabulary and sentence structures. The program also includes classic Sesame Street Muppets, animation and live-action segments. Tingo speaks in English as well as the native language to clarify and reinforce storylines and language concepts.

The bilingual instruction is offered in five languages -- Spanish, Hmong, Korean, Mandarin Chinese and Vietnamese, plus an English-only track suitable for all ESL students. Part of the multivolume Sesame English: ESL for Children DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
