New to English rapidly builds English language skills and confidence in pupils with little or no English. The series uses well-established language learning techniques, and students can use the software independently even if they don’t speak any English.
Each CD focuses on the vocabulary of particular environments that pupils need to be familiar with. Students explore each setting in detail, moving to different areas at their own pace.

Acquire new language skills
Activities focus on listening, speaking, reading and writing. These target the language skills pupils need to access across the curriculum. High quality recorded speech is used in all the activities, and new words are introduced and reinforced at a careful pace.
Build self-confidence through independent learning
Learners work at their own pace and build up their skills and confidence in a comfortable setting. In many activities children listen to recorded words or phrases, and then record themselves saying the same words. They are able to repeat their recording as many times as they wish.
Enhance social language skills
New to English works well with groups of learners at a similar level working together. Use your interactive whiteboard to make learning a social experience and get students to communicate with each other.
Develop an understanding of simple sentence structures and functional English
As learners engage in the wide range of activities, they begin to understand key words and phrases. They reinforce and enhance their new language skills by engaging in a number of consolidation activities.
