A short course to build skills and confidence at real beginner level.

Key features

  • The grammar is presented in tabular form at the end of each unit, along with an exercise for students to check their understanding.
  • Despite the low level, simple skills work and manageable communicative activities are incorporated to develop interactive skills and make the language learning meaningful.
  • An 'Everyday English' section in each unit practises common expressions and survival English for everyday situations.
  • It provides an ideal foundation course for students preparing for New Headway Elementary and other elementary courses.
