Zippy Deedoo introduces communication in English and develops long-term memory and linguistic skills appropriate to the age range.
Children learn to understand the global meaning of a story, repeat short expressions, follow simple instructions, introduce themselves, say hello and goodbye, pronounce the names of several items of food, clothes and colours, as well as basic language structures related to everyday life.
Topics are introduced via short stories based on children's daily lives, thus allowing youngsters to learn English in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. A highlight of the course is Story Time - motivating stories involving characters, which are ideal for presenting topics, lexis and simple structures. Memorisation and communication is achieved through Game Time in which young learners interact with their fellow pupils and overcome emotional barriers such as shyness or the fear of making mistakes. Sing & Dance Time allows the children to involve both mind and body in language learning and creates a fun and playful atmosphere.
Contains a clear explanation of each lesson with teaching sequences specifying timing for each activity. It also includes transcripts of the audio CD, ideas for drama and games, craft activities, cross-curricular and extra-curricular links as well as worksheets to be included in the Portfolio, and an end-of-year certficate.
