Big Fun teaches young children English – by listening, imitating and repeating –
in the same way that they learn their native language. And they gain the
confidence to speak English on their own.
• Effective learning
Starting with basic vocabulary and language, Big Fun teaches children English
in the context of eight engaging themes. They learn about math, reading and
writing readiness, values and nature as they practice motor skills and have fun
doing creative projects.
• Keeps your young learners focused
A variety of video, listening, audio and play oriented activities to keep your
young learners engaged. The Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
approach of using nature topics in the Amazing units challenges your students
and brings the real world into the classroom.
• Makes learning English meaningful and fun
Songs, chants and simple conversation practice as part of the audio program
helps pupils learn English even while they are not literate in their native
language. And by the end of Level 3, students are able to read and write.
• Raise childrens’ awareness
Assessment for Learning techniques use age-appropriate activities to help
raise childrens’ awareness of what they are learning and help you assess their
progress. Children record what they like best in the unit Wrap-Up, and you can
use these responses to plan the end of year show.
• 21st Century Skills approach
Illustrated scenarios, songs, chants and games help your pupils learn the values
that are as important for children as the language skills they are learning.
Critical thinking/problem solving, Creativity, Communication and Collaboration
are the foundation to this 21st Century Skills approach.
