Explorers 1

Explorers 1 workbook

Age: 8-10
Level: A1

This course is suitable for children in their 3rd or 4th year of primary English who are able to talk about a range of familiar topics, including things they do in other subjects at school.

At this level, the courses start to adopt a more CLIL-based approach to content and methodology, using English as a vehicle for learning about a range of other topics. In this course the lessons integrate geography-based and maths-based topics into the language learning experience.

Explorers 1 can stand alone for a one-week course or be taught side-by-side with Explorers 2 on a two-week course.
