Playing an activity with audio language support in the Activity Explorer

Administrators and Teachers can play individual activities in the Activity Explorer using audio language support if the activity includes language support. Not all activities in Imagine Language & Literacy include audio language support: it's only available in activities where first language support is most needed to teach English language and literacy concepts to non-native speakers.
