Flourish - a new initiative from the makers of Reading Genius - Bilingual Stories

We are elated to share with everyone that Reading Genius - Bilingual Stories was a finalist in the prestigious ELTons contest conducted by the British Council, under the Local Innovation Category.

Reading Genius - Bilingual Stories is a collection of bilingual stories in the English and Tamil languages to improve the reading comprehension of our children. The stories have been compiled into the bilingual form and QR codes have been embedded to facilitate learning from relevant material. We have picked the content such that the stories are of Indian origin. This is to ensure that it helps our young readers relate better to the material. Our sincere thanks to all the contributors, for each of their stories, has made this happen. 

 

Flourish - A Book of stories, a part of Flourish, is our next initiative towards enhancing language learning. It is a unique series of bilingual books (English + Tamil) that intend to improve the English language skills of children from classes 1-8 and impart value education through stories. The stories in these books are enhanced, in terms of exercises provided for the students, for them to have an immersive learning experience. In addition, the books are also supplemented with a mobile application to help children read with ease. 

We are currently working on these books and they will be available to the public by May 2021. Head over to our website https://flourishbooks.app/ to know more about the Flourish initiative.

Flourish - A Book of stories is supported by Global Shapers Community, Chennai.

Feel free to circulate our books given below in any form (print/digital) because we believe that sharing is caring. If you do use our content in any form, please give us due credit. We would love to see how you've used the material :)
