A six-level course to suit a high number of contact hours

Beautifully illustrated and appealing to both children and teachers, this six-level course is designed to meet the needs of teachers and learners who have a high number of contact hours in English. Footprints provides a strong emphasis on cross-curricular content with clearly identified language aims that acknowledge the increasing trend towards content-based learning.

Levels 1 and 2 take children on a magical journey, meeting well-known fairy tale characters to find the treasure at the end of the rainbow. Levels 3 and 4 continue the idea of a quest in the context of a mystery and adventure story which matches the children's growing maturity. Levels 5 and 6 develop the children's learning strategies and language skills as they follow the exploits of the Footprints Club characters.

Each level of Footprints has an accompanying Digital Book, comprised of the digital Pupil's Book and the digital Activity Book. These digital books are perfect for whole class teaching and focusing on stories and individual activities close up, using an Interactive Whiteboard or digital projection. Each digital book comes packaged as a CD-ROM to make an easy and flexible use in the classroom.
