Practical English Starter is the perfect course for beginners, or those needing to re-learn some of the very basics of English. The course includes a wide range of practical, everyday topics like introducing yourself, numbers, shopping, and transport. Those who are willing to study 2-3 hours a week over several months will see a significant improvement in their level, and in international exam test scores.
Each lesson offers varied content and task types, and follows a clear and proven learning cycle to build skills systematically. The lessons are organized in a cyclical syllabus that allows learners to build their confidence with carefully graded reading and listening texts, moving from easy to more difficult.
Every four lessons, learners get a chance to show what they have learned in a simple role-play activity based on an everyday survival situation. Short, focused pronunciation and speaking exercises allow learners to record their voice, and focus on the stress and intonation of core vocabulary.
Students are exposed to a wide range of accents from around the English-speaking world to help prepare them for travel, or to help them progress to a pre-intermediate level of English and further study.
Practical English Starter also includes optional use of blended learning material which complements the digital lessons. There are Hand-outs, Teacher's Notes, Language Summaries and Audio for group, 1:1, or Skype-type speaking lessons.
