How did I ever get into this mess?

It’s another wild and wacky day in the life of Noah, a nine-year-old boy living in a world where just about no one understands him.

Literally.

Noah is visiting his grandmother. Where she lives, no one speaks English. He’s trying to learn Spanish, but sometimes he gets it wrong…and that’s when the trouble starts.

But somehow Noah always manages to solve the problems he's created, learning Spanish in the process. Kids laugh and learn along with him.


Oh Noah! is designed to teach Spanish to children ages six to eight through animated videos with embedded games that help build vocabulary. In each three-minute video, a misunderstanding launches a comic misadventure. Kids learn language better when they can put it into meaningful context. Although – like Noah – they may not understand all the Spanish dialogue, kids can comprehend the story told through rich visual storytelling, much like a silent movie.

Each video features opportunities for kids to roll their cursor over objects on the screen to hear the Spanish translation. Three different vocabulary-driven, arcade-style games reinforce learning. Leveling and racing against the clock encourage replayability and repeated exposure to vocabulary. Another game on the website, How Do You Say…?, helps kids learn common expressions in Spanish.
