BLOSSOMS Lessons Now Available in Portuguese

September 12, 2012

We are happy to announce that our Brazilian partner, Canal Futura, Brazil's largest educational television network http://www.futura.org.br/, has now completed the translation of 32 BLOSSOMS modules into Portuguese, using subtitles. This adds a fourth language to BLOSSOMS: Portuguese, in addition to English, Arabic and Urdu. Canal Futura plans to air these translated BLOSSOMS modules multiple times over their extended network, which reaches 35 million Brazilians. The selected 37 modules were drawn from the set of modules that we had available as of May 2011. We are hopeful that as the joint partnership evolves and grows, additional modules that have been created during the last 15 months will also be translated.
