Muzzy: Play, Discover, Create

Give your child the benefit of learning a second language.

MUZZY Club is the online version of the award-winning language course for children developed by the BBC. Durham County Library patrons now have access to a second language – at home, at grandma’s house, in the library, at school – anywhere there is an internet connection.

Please note: if you are accessing Muzzy from outside of a Durham County Library location, you will need to enter your 14-digit library card number to log on.

How Does MUZZY Work?

  • Children are entertained as they watch a cartoon story about MUZZY and his friends.
  • Scene by scene, the story and Vocabulary Builder present hundreds of functional words and phrases spoken by native speakers with authentic accents.
  • With repetition, children absorb the new language naturally through the context of the story and its imagery.
  • Entertaining online games, e-books, printable flashcards, karaoke-type songs and a recording feature reinforce what the child learned.
