Take Shape is a six-level course in American English, taking young learners from beginners through to intermediate level. Children are encouraged to make connections, through English, to other school subjects and to the world outside the classroom.
Each unit introduces key language and recycles language taught previously, so children are able to build and reflect on what they have learned. It also encourages the activation of children’s prior knowledge, enabling them to develop both collaborative and communicative skills. The course develops the two systems, language (vocabulary, grammar, spelling) and skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) methodically and comprehensively to enable children to become effective communicators in English.
