This course is aimed at absolute beginners, or those who have learnt a little English but lack the confidence to build on it. It provides a solid foundation for "New Headway Elementary". Its measured, step-by-step approach builds both skills and confidence, and the mix of language work and plentiful practice material enables learners to consolidate their knowledge of key points before proceeding further. A clearly defined grammatical syllabus includes past, present and future time and provides a thorough basis on which to build. The presentation of new language is gradual, methodical and clearly structured, giving learners a clear sense of progression. The vocabulary syllabus focuses on high-frequency survival terms and avoids overload. Throughout, the gradual introduction of simple skills work with manageable communicative activities gives learners a sense of achievement. The "Everyday English" section practises social expressions in common situations and shows how learners can apply their knowledge in practical ways.
