Learn English with MovieStarPlanet

Pupils aged 10-15 can now experience a new, free, social virtual tool called MovieStar Planet to practice and improve their English skills by creating cartoons in a fun and innovative environment. This virtual world for students has been developed in collaboration with researchers from the Danish University of Education and a number of Danish primary school teachers. It has been financially supported by the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, and is part of the research and development project dedicated to games in education, entitled Serious Games on a Global Market Place (see post below for further information).
