Lippy and Messy


The Lippy and Messy system of English language teaching for pre-school and primary school children has been developed by a team of ELT specialists from The Bell Institute for English Language Studies in Krakow (a member of the Bell Group, Cambridge) together with the creators of the TV series Lippy and Messy. Thanks to regular broadcasts on Polish Public Television TVP1, this programme, combining entertainment with language education, has gained wide popularity and helped a generation of children to take their first steps in English. In each of the 150 episodes, the amusing clowns Lippy and Messy, together with Wizzy (The Wizard of Words) go through all kinds of adventures. While watching the series, children not only have fun but also pick up lots of English words and phrases presented in a colourful and easily accessible form.
