Little Bugs

A fun, lively course for young learners of English

Little Bugs provides a motivating starting point for children who are either learning English for the first time or who have done an initial course. It also develops interest and enjoyment in learning English and promotes an active desire in children to communicate in English.

The new language is contextualised in stories to give pleasure and confidence in learning English, while the fun and easy-to-use craft activities help children to learn by doing.

Little Bugs can be used with Big Bugs as part of a six-level course.
