ANORAK - Revista en inglés para niños / English children's mag

Talking about motivation and how to inspire kids to get more involved on learning English, today I'd like to introduce you to ANORAK magazine.

This nearly bimonthly publication (five issues a year), colorful and modern illustrated  magazine defines itself as 'the happy mag for kids' and, actually, it is. But not only happy, it is like home: cosy, enlightning and cheery. 

Every issue is full of stories, presented under different graphic techniques, rhymes, games, quizzes and activities for children aged from 6 to 12. Each one is dedicated to a single subject: I got the one about animals, but inventions, toys, vikings etc. are waiting for you to enjoy them all.

And not only that! Your child can be part of its Little Editors' team. 

Yes! You read it right! 

Children are allowed to send drawings, rhymes, stories and comics to Anorak. Wouldn't be motivating for your students to cooperate with a real English Magazine?

I bet, it would. 

Designed to be 100% ecological (it' s printed on recycled paper using vegetable ink) and collected, you can purchase it in several countries all around the world 

Here in Spain it is mostly sold in Barcelona, but also in Madrid, Valencia and Gijon.

Don't miss it! Your children will love it!

I design series of activities based on a communicative method that will help children to practice the grammar they're learning at school.

Many ESL activities, I see, are nothing more than 'fill in the blank' exercises that only teach kids how to fill in blanks and miss the whole point of learning to speak and understand a new language.

It's much easier and more fun to learn by doing, and you'll be surprised at how quickly you'll see valuable results. 

You can get my activities on my online store:


  1. A really cool idea for ESL. I like the way each issue is devoted to one particular theme.

  2. a real awesome idea indeed. never fails to impress. what really impress me is that children or parents can interact with Anorak. this is a very useful and interesting development for children.
