Flexible material that fits ANY primary course

Use Oxford Skills World alongside any primary course or by itself. You can use the chapters in any order, making it easy to fit your teaching needs – it offers complete flexibility for skills teaching. The syllabus matches Oxford's flagship primary courses, including Family and Friends, Let’s Go, Everybody Up, English Time - and many more!

Fun and adventure on every page!

Molly and Olly are the characters who turn learning into an adventure – they get children excited about learning. Combined with children’s topics and the research-backed methodology you’d expect from Oxford, this course gives you a syllabus you can trust with young learners. The Student's website includes Student Book / Workbook audio, bilingual wordlists, and self-study resources.

Progress checks and skills strategies help learners to become independent

When students can see the progress they make, they get more from their learning. This is why can-do objectives and proof-of-learning activities appear throughout: to encourage learners, and to get them involved. The built-in strategies for independent learning boost proficiency and autonomy.

Exam-style tasks prepare learners for secondary

The syllabus correlates with Cambridge English Qualifications Young Learners exams and TOEFL Junior, which begins the familiarisation process for international exams. Oxford Skills World also includes access to Cambridge resources.

Teaching support for every need

Will you need help integrating the syllabus into your school curriculum? Do you want teaching guides, answer keys, wordlists, and resources to assess proficiency? Would you like professional development support to enhance your teaching? All of this is available. We’ve created a package that makes it as easy as possible for you to teach skills to primary learners – and teach them well.
