Setting audio language support for a student

Imagine Language & Literacy and Imagine Español both provide first-language audio support as part of your students' experience. First-language audio support provides audio translations in the students' first (or native) language instead of English. When you set the audio language support for a student to their first language, students will hear instructions, direct vocabulary translations, new sounds instruction, and instructional feedback in that language. (For more information about Imagine Learning's first language support, see First language support.)

Administrators can change the audio language support for any student, and Teachers can change the audio language support for any student assigned to them. You can edit individual student accounts to set their audio language support. You can also set audio language support for your students when you you add student accounts or if you use self-managed rostering to roster your students.

 Note

By default, the audio support language assigned to students who are using Imagine Español is Spanish (although you can change it to English).
