In-flight foreign language learning offered to children by easyJet

Access to language-learning ebooks across the easyJet network is being offered this summer.

All 300 aircraft are loaded with free introductory access to the Mizzi Mozzi series of children’s books written in seven European languages.

A total of 84 digital titles are being made available for free via QR codes.

The return of the budget airline’s in-flight ‘flybraries’ follows new research showing that 82% of British parents are concerned their children have missed out on exposure to new cultures, experiences and languages as a result of foreign travel restrictions being in place for almost 18 months.

The study pinpoints that lack of exposure to foreign languages ranked highest on parents’ concerns.

The new partnership with children’s book series Mizzi Mozzi offers interactive stories that encourage readers them to discover foreign languages, including French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Greek and English.
