Q: What will my child learn from Doby & Disy? A: Doby and Disy teach children basic English words and phrases along with mathematic and music skills and physical coordination. Children also learn with Doby and Disy how to observe situations and solve problems. Q: How does Doby & Disy teach English? A: In each episode, Doby & Disy solve a problem based on specific words and phrases in conversational English, which pre-schoolers learn as they solve the problem with them. These words and phrases include a variety of basic nouns, adjectives, and commands. Q. Why is English used in the show? A: Educators believe that introducing a second language to a child before the age of 6 or 7 is an important factor in his/her ability to achieve fluency. For many of our pre-schoolers, Doby & Disy are their first encounter with a foreign language. As such, the show might teach them a little English and make them curious and interested in learning more, or simply make them aware of and comfortable with foreign languages.
Q. How are Doby&Disy role models? A. Doby & Disy are problem solvers who don't give up when faced with obstacles. They are caring friends always ready to help someone in need; and they are adventurers whose curiosity and spirit lead them to explore the world. Doby & Disy are role models not only for children, but for adults too! Q. What is the show's curriculum? A. It's based on Howard Gardner's ideas about multiple intelligences. In every episode we incorporate seven different learning "intelligences" such as Verbal/Linguistic, logical/mathematical, Visual/Spatial, musical/auditory, Inter-personal/Social, Intra-personal/Introspective, Naturalist, and bodily/kinesthetic. We script the show so little kids actively use each intelligence to help Doby & Disy. Q. Can you talk about the interactivity of the show? A. It's probably the most important aspect of the show and the thing that kids enjoy most. Parents can always tell when their kids are watching Doby&Disy by hearing the kids talking back to the screen. We are also extremely proud of how successful we have been in getting kids off the sofa, up and moving.
<ul><li>Q. How do you make sure the shows are appropriate for the audience? </li></ul><ul><li>My team and I actually have some successful experience in pre-school projects (such as English Roller Coaster etc.) before Doby&Disy. At the time we decided to start this project, many members of the creative team have pre-schoolers of our own. I have a 4-year-old son, a 3-year-old daughter. Being parents has been helpful as we try to write stories that are appropriate for our audience. It's like having our very own focus group. At the same time, every episode is tested (and re-tested) by our Research Department with large numbers of pre-schoolers and we learn an incredible amount every time. We tried out story ideas on them to see if they're hooked. We also asked parents to give advices and suggestions on each story. </li></ul>Q. What makes Doby&Disy different from other children's programs? A. One of the things I love most about the show and something that makes it unique, is that viewers are asked to be active participants — not only by answering questions, but by getting off the couch and moving their bodies. Parents tell us they know when Doby&Disy is on because they'll see and hear their kids playing along with the show: counting, speaking English, jumping, rowing, clapping, etc. The creative drawing and music also help to make the show outstanding.
