Unique 'Big Picture' approach

  • New language is introduced through entertaining illustrations that draw children in from the very beginning and provide a context for real-life language.
  • The detailed pictures help to build your students' vocabulary and keep them focused on the lesson.

Stories, songs, and craft activities keep students of all learning styles engaged in English Time lessons

  • Stories: the same characters accompany children through all the levels and become their motivating English learning friends. 'Digger's World', an ongoing story, recycles language in a natural, conversational way.
  • Songs: familiar tunes help to make new language memorable. Children will enjoy practising at home with the new Student Audio CD (includes recordings of conversations, grammar, songs, and phonics from the Student Book).
  • 'Project Time' pages: combine English with different skills, such as research, writing and creativity. (Projects are great for showing parents what students have learnt!)
  • Cross-curricular pages: link English to school subjects taught in other classes.
