how the material is organised

The learning and teaching material is organised into three categories.

topic-based units »
The material is organised into 36 units reflecting kids' interests (for example, Colours, Fruits, Toys, Wild Animals). Each unit focuses on a particular vocabulary theme, has the same format, and introduces ten new words. They reappear both in the activities to play online and in the worksheets to download and print.

online activities »
There are six different types of online activities, including interactive dictionaries, word games, and vocabulary quizzes as well. Although designed as an integral part of our topic-based units for learning and practising English vocabulary presented on this website, these activities can be used separately, in any way you like or need.

printable resources »
From flashcard sets and bingo! cards to word games and quizzes. You will find here 360 woksheets that complete our online resources. However, you can use them independently, in any way you like.
