This short course for young students is based on the highly successful Cambridge English for Schools series. Through the variety of tasks, the rich content and the superb visual material, students learn English naturally and in ways which generate enthusiasm and motivation. Listening and Speaking Packs for self-study provide extra practice in listening, speaking and pronunciation. Videos are also available for all levels. There are five levels plus a Starter, and each level provides 40-60 hours of class work.
