Learning and Teaching Material

This unit introduces kids to ten English words connected with the theme Family and contains resources to learn, practise and revise new vocabulary in a fun way. The vocabulary words are presented before being practised. Then they reappear both in the activities to play online and in the worksheets to download and print.

The unit has four areas to explore: Learn, Practise, Test Yourself, Download and Print. First comes the Learn! section with the picture dictionary that introduces ten new English words through pictures, sounds and text. Then you can practise new vocabulary by playing three different word games (matching, spelling, guessing) and test yourself by taking our picture test and vocabulary quiz. Finally, there is a section that contains printable worksheets to practise offline.
