The Easy English Series – Book 1: Easy Words by Margaret Warner
– Thematic Vocabulary for Students who have little or no Experience of English
The Easy English Series consists of eight books, all of which have been carefully constructed to increase the proficiency of ESL (English as a Second Language) and ESD (English as a Second Dialect) students’ use of standard English. The series immerses students in a language programme which is accessible and relevant to the lives and experiences of young people, regardless of their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The series is very well laid out with an appealing font, graphics that will appeal to all ages and text is well spaced and uncluttered. The activities in each book are suitable for ESL/ESD students or any student who is struggling with the English language.
Easy English Book 1: Easy Words is the first book in the series and aims to improve educational outcomes for indigenous and ESL students. It introduces students to basic vocabulary needed to communicate and function in Australian life. It introduces this vocabulary through clear and precise illustrations and prompts the students to use and remember the vocabulary through carefully designed student activities which are outcome linked. The solutions for Easy Words activities are provided at the back of the book.
