EuroTalk’s chatterbox language app expands into all-round learning tool for primary school children

Share Article

chatterbox, a unique online software tool for primary schools is proving such a hit with children that it is being expanded to cover almost all subjects on the national curriculum. EuroTalk launched chatterbox just a year ago with flashcards and fun games helping children learn languages, but it's been so successful that it’s already widening its remit with Bett visitors getting an exclusive free 30-day trial to see for themselves.

chatterbox - a world of learning for primary school children

The new chatterbox covers key subject areas of the national curriculum

Children learn fast through chatterbox and teachers are able to create their own content for bespoke lessons, which is a popular feature.

“We have been blown away by the success of chatterbox and so have decided to expand it rapidly into new subject areas,” said EuroTalk chairman Dick Howeson. “Children learn fast through chatterbox and teachers are able to create their own content for bespoke lessons, which is a popular feature.”

St Edmund Campion Primary School in Nottingham was one of the pioneers for this new way of learning. Teacher Daniela Wilks runs a chatterbox club once a week, and says her pupils enjoy the interactive and competitive nature of the software, as well as the range of content it offers.

“My pupils love chatterbox as they can ‘dip their toes’ into lots of different languages whilst playing games and having fun. I find that particularly boys enjoy being able to see the ‘ranking’ within our school, which brings a slight competitive element with it.”

As well as languages, the new chatterbox will help children absorb facts, names, concepts and important terms related to key areas of the curriculum: English, maths, science, art and design, computing, design and technology, geography, history, music and physical education.

Each subject is broken down into categories, with content covering topics as diverse as times tables, planets, computer terminology and punctuation. While EuroTalk will regularly add new material to the program, teachers can also create their own, using the pack builder provided within chatterbox.

“This is a new direction for EuroTalk, and with 25 years experience in producing language software, we’re excited about the potential of our learning method to teach other subjects,” said Dick Howeson. “While we remain passionate about learning other languages, we also know there are plenty of things for children to learn in their own language too. With chatterbox, now they can do both.”

The online software is available across Windows and Mac platforms, and children can also learn on tablets. Teachers visiting London’s Bett Show next week will be able to see chatterbox in action, and sign up for a 30-day, no obligation free trial for their school, after which they will have the option to subscribe for half price.
