Mini Magic

Two-level story-based course for young children learning English for the first time

Mini Magic is a two-level story-based course for young children learning English for the first time. It features easy-to understand stories that immerse children in English. Pupils gain a comprehensive working knowledge of English so that they will be able to use the language they have learnt in active participation.

Each level consists of six lively stories which are presented in a variety of ways: cartoon strips, Big Books and interactive posters with stickers.

The focus for this course is on listening and speaking, but optional photocopiable reading and writing activities can be found at the back of the Teacher's Book. Level 2 introduces reading and writing within a graded syllabus which leads into Story Magic Level 1.
