Cicero School District Uses Microsoft Surface To Make Bilingual Education Easier

In the Cicero School District, more than 50 percent of the students speak Spanish as their first language, and they’re learning English as a second language in school. The district has chosen Surface for its students to make learning in two languages easier with apps like BrainPop ESL and Microsoft’s Translator App.

BrainPOP ESL is a comprehensive English language-learning program that uses animated movies to model conversational English, writes Jacqueline Russell on the Surface Blog.
