Why learn Incredible English and more?

“If the brain is stimulated and enjoying what it’s doing then you learn more. If it’s too easy, it slides over you, but if it’s a bit more challenging it stays.” Author Sarah Phillips is an expert in CLIL and how the brain learns.

Brain-challenging activities

Every activity in Incredible English has been specially designed to challenge the brain, making learning English more exciting for you and your class.

Activities such as ‘spot the difference’ games are made more challenging by changing the position and size of the objects in the picture. This means students have to work harder to engage with the activity so they learn more, and retain it!

CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) – a lesson in every unit combines language learning with learning other school subjects and skills through English, so your class will learn more.

Social skills – the songs in every unit teach social and life skills.

All learning styles – a wide range of activities and resources appeal to every child no matter what their learning style.
