Explorers 2

Explorers 2 workbook

Age: 8-10
Level: A1

This course takes a look at language in its wider cultural context, incorporating activities based around life in a variety of English speaking countries. There are lessons on the UK, Australia, the USA and Canada.

By embedding English learning in its cultural context, the children will come to realise its importance as a world language and will learn a little about the some of the people and places where it is spoken as a first language.

The course also includes collaborative story-telling and poetry, and explores some of the ways in which English usage can vary from place to place, by comparing British and U.S. English.

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