Abstract

This paper introduces the software application MuViT (Multilingual Virtual Talking Books) which was developed within an EU funded Comenius project between 2011 and 2013. MuViT contains digital storybooks in five different languages (German, English, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish). The article specifies the theoretical background of the project, the software application and its objectives, as well as the research interests and first findings with regard to the development of mono- and plurilingual primary school pupils' language awareness while and after working with MuViT for 6 weeks.
