Immersive, interactive video series for Young Learners

The Story

Robin Hood and his best friends, Marian and Little Jim love living in Sherwood Forest. They also love stealing money from the very nasty Sheriff of Nottingham. This makes the Sheriff really, really… REALLY angry. The king of England is even angrier when he discovers that the Sheriff has no money for him to spend on luxuries. He demands Robin’s capture… or the Sheriff is in big, big trouble!

With its great comic characters and silly situations, this fun adaptation of the classic English legend of goodies versus baddies guarantees an enjoyable interactive immersion in English. Although it is aimed at learners from 7-12 years old, this video can be enjoyed by teen and adult learners too.

The Videos

This FUNTASTIC, learner-friendly comedy lasts approximately 60 minutes, but is cleverly divided into five episodes. Just like a mini miniseries!

Carefully graded language is combined with clear gestures and many moments of interaction. This unique language-learning experience allows viewers to engage verbally, physically and emotionally with the story from start to finish.

The Activities

Each episode comes with hours of relevant class/home study activities.

These great, easy-to-use activities help learners consolidate their knowledge, expand their vocabulary and use grammar in real-life contexts, whilst practising their speaking, listening reading, and writing skills.

All activities are student-centred and based on current popular EFL teaching methodologies. We also include helpful tips and alternative tasks to further facilitate learning at different stages of ability and to differentiate between the varying ages and levels of the viewers.

The activities are task-based, making them suitable for a wide range of levels. Many activities also include a drama component to help learners have fun and gain more confidence with speaking and to improve pronunciation.

Clever Pants

For nearly 20 years Clever Pants’ dynamic interactive theatre plays have regularly provided a fun and motivating language immersion for English learners of all ages all over Spain and Portugal. A total Eng-mersion, you might say! That’s an amazing: 5,000+ performances of 25+ different shows to 600,000+ happy audience members.

Then Covid happened. The serious economic effects and the public health concerns forced us to stop touring.

However, we took that time to create three specially adapted video versions of our funtastic, learner-friendly comedies. Filmed in a greenscreen studio with three actors, interactive moments and great animated special effects, these dynamic videos give English learners everywhere the chance to experience some classic Clever Pants edutainment.

The videos were all made with lots of love, lots of laughs, many silly wigs, really colourful tights and we hope everyone has as much fun watching them and learning from them as we did making them.
