First for English, first for fun, first for young children

First Friends has a very clear methodology and easy-to-follow structure which provides a regular unit cycle for new teachers and a solid framework for more experienced teachers.

Every unit opens with the new vocabulary and grammar presented in natural, familiar settings so the language is meaningful for children. Updated pictures for 2nd Edition include the additional vocabulary items and bring the topics to life.

Fun, integrated phonics lessons help children learn the names and recognise the sounds of English letters. The phonics syllabus is particularly well structured for children whose first language does not use the Roman alphabet.

New for 2nd Edition is the values lesson covering civic education and helping develop social skills. Children see examples of good behaviour in real-life situations so they find it easy to relate to and can carry the values into their own lives.

New numbers lessons help children with their numeracy skills and encourage a cross-curricular focus. In Level 1 children learn numbers 1-20. In Level 2 they learn numbers up to 100 and focus on basic Maths skills such as pattern practice and sums.

The stories enable children to use their imagination and provide a natural context for introducing and practising language. Children get used to seeing words on the page, preparing them for reading simple sentences.

Additional cross-curricular craft and project activities give hands-on learning and link English to the rest of the curriculum.
