We Are Heroes!

Life skills for the real world.

We Are Heroes! is a new 6-level primary course which has real world communication at its core. Engaging characters and stories provide authentic contexts for communication and an integrated life skills syllabus helps foster critical and creative thinking.

The whole series offers engaging real-world content and tasks, tailored to the needs and maturity of children, and helps them to progressively gain communicative competence. An emphasis on the development of life skills, presented in a child-friendly way, encourages pupils to reflect and apply the skills to their own lives.

Key features

  • Life Skills lessons with reading, writing, listening and speaking activities ensure that pupils develop both receptive and productive skills in parallel, as in real life.
  • Throughout the course, thinking skills activities are used to develop pupils’ ability to think critically and creatively.
  • Tips and accommodations for Special Education Needs allow all pupils to learn in the best possible way.
