Each activity also contains guidance and information on preparation, procedure, language focus, skills focus and thinking focus. Activities can be used flexibly in any order at any point in a teaching programme. In addition, the design of the activities allows teachers to adapt and apply the ideas to other themes. This book is suitable for both novice and experienced teachers who need a resource of enjoyable and motivating activities for the young learner classroom.
