This popular series addresses the needs of primary teachers, teacher trainers, and trainee teachers.

Key features

  • The book is based on the principle that English lessons form an integral part of a young learner's whole education, and that the teacher has a wider responsibility than the simple teaching of the language system.
  • Practical ideas are provided for a wide variety of language practice activities, including art and crafts, drama, games, storytelling and songs.
  • There are helpful hints for teachers new to young learners (age 6-12 years).


Note: A full contents list at the front of the book provides a complete list of the activities, the suggested level and age-group for each activity, and an approximate guide to the time an activity will take. The summary below aims to give a general idea of the book's organization.
