It’s research-based: The English on a Roll program is based on principles of Multisensory Structured Language (MSL), an extensively researched and highly successful language instruction method.
It’s multisensory: Rarely do language programs offer hands-on tools to students. English on a Roll is one of the few that simultaneously engages the three main pathways to the brain: visual, auditory, and tactile (hands-on).
It reduces errors and fosters success: The major groups of English parts of speech appear on individual cubes, respectively. For example, the pronouns ‘I, you, he/she, it, we, they’ are engraved on one cube. Because
only these words are on the cube, students learn the pronouns by association as they rotate the cube. In addition, the student has only six (in this case seven) words to choose from instead of hundreds or thousands, which greatly reduces errors.
Its game-like quality encourages practice: Each lesson includes games to play, and students create their own, too. English on a Roll is fun, which keeps students practicing–and practice is recognized as the single most significant factor in language acquisition.
It includes comprehensive instructional tools: The accompanying manual combines instructors’ guides, reproducible exercises and games for each of the teaching units–everything that is needed for successful learning. The teaching guides are easily used by anyone with a good command of English.
