Help | Britannica School getting started

On the top of the articles in Britannica School there are icons that allow you to: share, favourite, print, cite (the School uses APA), translate, and listen to an article rather than read an article. Use the + and - icons to make the font bigger or smaller.

Use the purple 1, 2, 3 buttons to change the level of reading and article detail. 1 is for Junior School students, 2 is for students in the middle years (year 6 to 8) and 3 is for students in year 9 and above. 

For more help use the HELP button located on the top right of the Britannica School web site.
