The Bottom Line - Bubbles is fascinating software which puts the emphasis on teacher - learner participation. In contrast to other software programs, Bubbles is conceived as an aid to developing spoken communication skills between participants using the software.
Bubbles provides a visually engaging learning playground in which children develop language skills. Language is acquired by exploring dreamlike environments which encourage verbal commentary because of their uniqueness. There is also an excellent guide to target structures readily available at all times. The greatest strength of the program is its scalability. Teachers can work on targets including various areas of vocabulary, short and longer phrases and sentences, tense, sequence, irregularity and much, much more. The key to success with this program is participation on the part of both the learner and the educator. As such, the program provides an ideal "learning space" and is unique in its ability to involve participants.
