Real English, right now!

Tempo is a three-level course for young teenagers, offering real, natural English. The syllabus has been developed in accordance with the CEF, and the topics and stories reflect the students' own development. There is a strong visual element to make the material accessible and motivating, whilst the multi-strand syllabus ensures that students have a solid foundation in grammar, vocabulary, communication, skills and culture.
