C&W by Oxford has six levels suitable for Primary 1 to 6 students; focused on developing second language learners’ reading and writing skills.
The topics and order of the units have been specially designed to complement what students are learning in language lessons, making it the perfect partner for current coursebooks.
The wide variety of entertaining and ‘real’ text types such as websites and magazine articles ensures the material is what students will want to read.
The interesting content motivates students to develop essential skills such as reading for detail and reading for gist, and each reading comprehension is thoroughly supported with a pre- and post- reading activity.
The writing tasks give students the opportunity to write about themselves. This increases their confidence and enthusiasm to write.
Each task is carefully designed so students receive the right amount of support and challenge to improve their writing skills. The model text helps students to structure their writing, and the pre-writing exercise enables them to practise punctuation, syntax, and text structuring.
Vocabulary exercises give students the chance to practise the new words they have learnt alongside familiar vocabulary items from their coursebooks.
