Young children learn a language when functioning within a familiar language context. The home is the centre of a child’s life but it is also the starting point for imagined worlds. The Washing Machine Set focuses on the well-known routine of sorting the laundry and washing the clothes, but it also introduces other-worldly characters that discover the magic of the washing machine.


The Washing Machine Set is one of the topic-related sets which aim to teach young children English in a motivating and interactive way. Each set can be treated as an equivalent of a textbook chapter and it contains stories, interactive tasks, games, craft activities and a song. In order to help children internalize the knowledge they gain with EMYS and reflect on their learning in a creative way, each set comes with a 48-page Activity Book. Classroom bundles for institutions can be found at a discounted price here.
