Introduction

Welcome to Moomin Language School! We are delighted and honored to be a part of your child's foreign language learning journey.

In Moomin Language School, your child gets individual daily practice with the learning application, coupled with weekly playful lessons with their teacher and other children. You can view your child's progress reports in our Webtool to see how they are doing in the application.

👉

Depending on the way your organization (kindergarten, school, training centre) has decided to organize the use Moomin Language School, you may have access to both the learning application and the learning reports, or only to the learning reports. Please contact the organization through which you are subscribing to Moomin Language School for more information.

User Credentials

The application requires user credentials. There are two ways you can get them:

  1. Either your child's teacher has sent you your child's individual user credentials, or
  2. You have received an email with your login name and a link to creating a password.

Once you have the user credentials (login name and password), you can sign in to the application and the Webtool.

👉

If you have not received the welcome message to your email address (with your login name and link to set your password) or you have not received pre-created user credentials from your teacher, please contact the organization through which you are subscribing to Moomin Language School.

Sign-in

Open the application, enter your login name and password, and click Sign in.

👉

When you first open the Moomin Language School application, you will be asked to grant it permission to use the camera, microphone and media on your device. These options will be used for a profile picture and the provided weekly extra speaking exercises and will only be active in our secured cloud environment.

👉

The first sign-in might take longer than usual since our application needs to load the newest learning content over the Internet.

Using the Application

Once you have logged in to the application, you will be directed to your child's week view. At this point you can give the device to your child and ask them to do the latest available daily exercise (Daily Study Unit). For best results, your child should complete one new daily study unit and perhaps some of the optional weekly extras each weekday.

👉

The learning application is meant to be used only for 5-15 minutes a day, no more. This may not seem like much, but research has shown that short but frequent practice sessions yield better learning results than longer, less frequent ones - plus this way language learning doesn't take up all day! In addition to learning a language, the service teaches children a safe way to use technology and that technology can be used for educational purposes as well, not just for entertainment.

We don't want students to play too much, which is why only one daily exercise becomes available each weekday. The exercises need to be done in order, so if there are unfinished exercises, the following available exercises will have a lock on them. Once the previous exercise is done, the lock will disappear and the exercise becomes available immediately. A clock means that the exercise is not yet available even if the student has done all the previous exercises - they will have to wait until the next day.

Playtime

The application includes a playtime to ensure that your child doesn't play for too long. Once the playtime is up, your child cannot do any more exercises in the application that day. Your teacher sets the playtime for their students, so please don't change the playtime unless explicitly asked to do so by the teacher.

If your child has playtime left once they have completed the daily exercise, they can do previous exercises or any of the additional exercises at the bottom of the screen. Completed study units can also always be repeated.

Learning Reports

  1. In your web browser, go to our Webtool (https://tools.moominls.com) and log in.
  2. After logging in, choose STATISTICS at the top of the page to see your child's progress reports.
  3. Under the Week tab (tab bar on the top of the statistics page) you can see the weekly theme and the new vocabulary introduced to your child during that week. Additionally, you can see your child's performance and time spent doing the exercises in the learning application during that week.
  4. You can also see summarized reports for each chapter and year by selecting the corresponding tab in the tab bar at the top of the page.
