Collins Explore English Stage 5 Student’s Resource for Primary International by Robert Kellas ISBN 9780008369149
Collins Explore English is a 6-level course which provides full coverage of the Cambridge Primary English as a Second Language curriculum framework (0057) from 2020. With a magazine-style Student’s Resource Book, comprehensive Student’s Coursebook, and supportive Teacher’s Guide, it offers clear progression within and across levels.
Written with a range of international contexts in mind, this innovative course has been designed to encourage maximum enjoyment and engagement by young learners, providing them with a fun and colourful Resource Book packed full of texts and illustrations to stimulate language learning. The corresponding Student’s Coursebook contains the activities relating to this input material. The Student’s Resource Book and Student’s Coursebook are used together to provide the full learning package for the student.
The Student’s Resource Books are visually appealing, with a magazine look and feel, and include a range of carefully selected fiction and non-fiction reading texts covering interesting topics for the age group. Designed to provide the stimulus materials for the course, they therefore don’t include any write-in activities, and instruction rubrics are kept short and simple allowing more space on the page for the visuals and text. The write-in exercises are all contained in the accompanying Student’s Coursebook, which leaves the Resource Books with a clean and engaging look.
The course takes an integrated skills approach to developing language skills with an emphasis on practical communication. It is designed with interactive learning at its heart and has been created to offer flexibility where this is beneficial while following a consistent approach so the course is easy to deliver. It is fully supported by a comprehensive Teacher’s Guide with detailed lesson plans that provide step-by-step guidance.
