WAY AHEAD is an imaginative, six-level course for primary school children who are learning English as a first foreign language. The course is reading based, with a strong communicative flavour. The structures and functions of English are taught through a variety of inviting, child-centred activities, which have been carefully graded and are suitable for classes in a variety of cultural backgrounds. At the lower levels, the books introduce a cast of interesting characters who contextualise the language and make learning fun. At the upper levels, new language is presented through a series of motivating and informative topics, and the course develops the skills the children need to pursue their studies to a higher level. This new edition of Way Ahead has been redesigned and updated to attract a new generation of learners. The completely new Practice Books include more exercises, additional handwriting work and more challenging practice tests. The new Story Audio Cassettes offer recorded versions of the Reading for Pleasure pages from the Pupil's Books.
