Fun new three-level British English course with fully integrated DVD, motivating pre-schoolers to learn through memorable stories and songs. This great new series focuses on the real-life pre-school environment, a familiar setting for little ones to start learning English through other subjects. Monkey (the puppet) starts every lesson in a fun way and the children's enthusiasm for English builds from the beginning. Through easy-to-follow classroom routines for each lesson children also learn to develop good habits and good behaviour.
