This program helps young viewers learn about listening, paying attention and making comparisons as students are introduced to English expressions, vocabulary and sentence structures.

Episodes include:

Tingo the Superstar

Tingo gets a shot at being a movie star, but he can't seem to keep quiet on the set! Children learn to ask questions using infinitives, such as "Would you like to be in my next movie?" and practice using common phrases like "Sshhh!" and "Please be quiet." Young learners review the numbers "1" through "18," and are introduced to the letter "Q." Essential vocabulary presented includes "movie," "scary" and "library." Includes Bert and Ernie at the movies.

Tall, Taller, Tallest

Children learn the difference between tall and short in this delightful program, as Tingo discovers he's exactly the right size ... for a Tingo! Young learners will discover comparative adjectives such as "higher" and "lower," and will practice using common expressions like "Can you help me?" and "over there." The phrase "Do you like it?" is reviewed while new vocabulary words are introduced, including "hammer," "help" and "kite." Includes the Sesame Street Muppets singing and presenting the alphabet.

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.
