provides an opportunity for autonomous learning and revision of language from the course.

Im particularly interested in second language learning


through reading and telling stories. Young learners acquire
language unconsciously. The activities we do in class should
help this kind of acquisition. Stories are the most valuable
resource we have. They offer pupils a world of supported
meaning that they can relate to writing and provide an ideal
introduction to the foreign language as they present language
in a familiar and memorable context. This course is for any
teacher who is or will be- teaching English to young
learners and is interested in using stories, games and songs
their core materials.
I hope you enjoy using English Adventure as much as I have
enjoyed teaching from this book.
I wish you and your learners well.
