Language is introduced as lexical items or language chunks, with emphasis placed on pronunciation and understanding.
Communicative student-to-student and student-to-teacher activities keep interest and motivation high.
Comprehensive Teacher’s Guide includes introductions, explanations, step-by-step instructions, supplemental activities and extension ideas.
