Slangman's World, currently airing on the American Forces Network (AFN) in 175 countries, introduces young children to foreign languages and cultures through music, animation and magic. Slangman, the show's host, is a fun-loving wizard and inventor who lives in a house high on a cloud. His best friend, Wordy, is a young language dictionary on a quest to fill up his pages with words from around the world so he can earn his place in the Great Hall of Books.
The purpose of Slangman's World is not just to teach children a few words in a new language but to inspire them to want to learn more about the people, languages and cultures around the world. Fun is the key. Slangman's World is a feast for the senses, giving children more to discover every time they watch it.
"The limits of my language are the limits of my world."
– Ludwig Wittgenstein
