Hot Spot

A lively course for 'betweenagers'

Hot Spot is aimed at the 'betweenagers' age group, bridging the gap between upper primary and secondary. Hot Spot makes the most of the growing identity of the young teenager through motivating texts and stories, lively illustrations and photography that bring learning to life. Each book contains seven theme-based modules, each made up of three double page lessons, a review section and an Extra Special! Integrated skills lesson. The course follows a transparent grammar syllabus while maintaining a balance of reading, writing and listening in every lesson. At every opportunity students are encouraged to personalise and practice their speaking skills.

    The Hot Spot series is an excellent course for young learners from about 10 to 14 year old. All levels offer interesting texts combined with a clear set up and a steady development of all language skills. The two-page lessons all come with thorough revision in the activity book, a section for fast finishers and extra practice. Very easy to work with for both teachers and students, without ever getting boring. The lesson topics help raising the students awareness of the world around us.
