english expressions for kids
section overview

This page gives you an overview of the section structure and organisation of the material as well. There are also some general tips on how to use our learning and teaching resources, and how to navigate.

We hope this will be useful in helping you to find suitable material for you and your students.


section structure

This section, divided into four main areas, includes both online and printable materials that can help kids learn and practise basic English phrases used in simple communication.

The language topics are organised into 36 thematic units. In these units you will find a serial picture story, short lessons with pictures and audio files, as well as printable worksheets and games.

Although designed as components of a whole (each particular online lesson or story episode, or worksheet set is related to a specific unit), these resources can be used separately in any way you want.

There are also some support pages to help you navigate and find what you need:
