The materials have been designed to be use- friendly for both the physical and the remote classroom with audio files built into the slides and a wide range of materials that students can scan onto mobile devices or open in a browser tab to make listening or role play type activities easier to manage.
The blended learning activities that are included in each unit are intended to extend the students learning and help to develop their learner independence. The activities can be used at the discretion of the teacher either in a flipped way to prepare students for the lessons or to consolidate and extend what students have learned during the lessons. These activities have been developed to help students develop their writing skills, activate their vocabulary, improve their pronunciation and further develop their listening skills. Each unit contains at least 5 interactive activities that students can do either on their computer or mobile device.
The materials use visually rich images, audio monologues and creative and engaging tasks to help students develop empathy with others and approach the development of their language skills in a personal and intimate way.
Listening comprehension tasks encourage students to respond to the speaker in a more personal way, so students are encouraged to find common ground with the speaker by looking for how they are similar to them.
Each unit ends with a reflection task that encourages students to think about what they have learned and how they will remember, share and use it. This is also an opportunity for the teacher to get some feedback about what the students enjoyed and valued about the lessons and the materials.
