Marco el Mago kit

We are very excited about the launch of the AIM Spanish series ¡Jóvenes en acción!  

In the first kit, the story, entitled Marco el Mago, is an original play full of humor, containing characters with emotionally-charged lines that will easily bring the language to life for the students. Marco is a powerful wizard, proud of his abilities, but he chooses to help only those who can do favors for him in return. One day, however, he learns an important lesson when an elf removes his powers and Marco comes to understand that his gift should be shared, most of all, with those in need.

Enhance your kit with the following extras:
Jorge el Valeroso- Reader

This is the story of Jorge,  a boy who is not scared of anything. People think he is crazy because Jorge has no fear. One day, after talking with his father, he decides to find out what fear is. First, he visits to a restaurant where he meets a group of men. They tell him that he will discover what fear is if he stays in the tower of the castle. He decides to go to the castle where he meets the King. The king explains that spending three nights in the tower of his castle would certainly help him understand what fear is. Then, he promises Jorge that if he manages to sleep in the tower for three nights, he can marry his daughter. Jorge packs some wood, matches and a ball of yarn to take with him to the tower.

Jorge comes to understand that people are afraid when they think they will lose something or someone very important to them.

We solve many of the challenges language teachers face.

Learn about some of the challenges Primary School Teachers face when teaching languages.

The Gesture Approach

The AIM is a methodology that supports students by providing strategies and techniques that ensure student language acquisition and a high level of engagement. The Gesture Approach allows students to visualize, hear, say and 'feel' the language simultaneously, and this results in rapid proficiency development.

A Literacy- and Arts-Based Approach

Through the use of story and drama, songs, raps, and dances, students are moving to the language as they create meaning. Scaffolding and cooperative learning strategies help all students - the shy, weak, and strong - to find great support and success.

High-Frequency Vocabulary

One of the most essential aspects of AIM that ensures student success is the high-frequency vocabulary (Pared-Down Language) that threads throughout every aspect of this methodology. AIM is designed such that each word is repeated extensively, allowing students to develop a strong foundation for language proficiency.
