Open Door English Teaching Guide 1
Open Door English is a lively, carefully-graded course for children in English-medium schools. It opens a door to the skills and attitudes necessary for life in the 21st century.
Each teaching unit begins with a stimulating reading text in a variety of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry genres.
Examples of target vocabulary and grammar are contextualised in the reading texts.
Related spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation exercises are progressively graded.
‘Wise owl’ boxes teach the rules in simple, child-friendly language.
Related speaking and listening tasks ensure that children can communicate effectively through English.
The audio-recording on My E-Mate provides a correct model of pronunciation for all texts, spellings, and listening tasks.
All the learning of a unit comes together in the composition task, which supports individual expression with clear writing frames.
Every unit fosters curiosity, critical thinking, responsibility, co-operation, and creativity.
Every fifth unit revises all the skills taught in the previous four units.
