This great new series focuses on the real-life pre-school environment, a familiar setting for little ones to start learning English through other subjects.

Monkey (the puppet) starts every lesson in a fun way and the children's enthusiasm for English builds from the beginning.

Through easy-to-follow classroom routines for each lesson, children also learn to develop good habits and good behaviour.

Playtime's lively stories present natural language in familiar contexts - using integrated DVD as well.

    • Pop-outs (six pages)
    • a Starter unit
    • 3 festival and holiday units
    • Mini flashcards (seven pages of smaller versions of the flashcards)

    2. Two vocabulary activities - to practise the vocabulary song

    3. Cross-curricular/DVD activity - to consolidate the theme

    4. Own life activity - to personalise the topic to the child's life

    5. Key language activity - to bring together all of the language learnt in the unit

    6. Song activity - using the pop outs

Tab 2

1. The Playtime Class Book appeals to all styles of learning, embodied in the four playful, child characters - Rocket, Twig, Star and Melody.

2. The teacher is provided with the widest variety of flexible components in a pre school course, including DVDs

3. Children are introduced to each story by a friendly monkey puppet who guides their repeated contact with the language through memorable songs, story songs, digital classroom resources and craft-based activities.

4. The cross-curricular approach helps learners explore their first experience of English through other subjects and see English in a real-life British context through photographs and DVD

5. Parents and learners are supported by a website with additional practice and content - building on a child's learning in school at home
