“Having been one of those students that struggled to keep up my interest in school, nothing makes me happier than hearing from teachers and parents all over the world how both the most challenged children are now learning through our apps, and enjoying it. The UK was the perfect place to launch next as the Nordics have shown the demand for digital based learning is on the rise. and the UK is definitely following suit.” says Jon Gunnar Thordarson, CEO of Mussila.

Research has shown that language and music are connected through listening, rhythm, and singing. This connection is essential for developing phonological awareness. WordPlay is the perfect addition to Mussila’s first game, Mussila Music, which has proven to be effective in teaching music to diverse groups of students.
