Super Starters is the first level of the Delta Young Learners English course and is an activity-based course suitable for 7 to 9 year olds and is ideal for preparation for the Cambridge ESOL YLE Starters test. It encourages pupils to “learn-by-doing”.
Super Starters has a rich variety of activities including:
- Cut-outs for each unit where pupils make puppets, spinners and masks, which are then used for speaking activities.
- A wide range of photocopiable material in the Teacher’s Book, including picture cards for each unit (used for card games and introducing / revising vocabulary) and two board games.
- Listening and pronunciation activities on the CDs.
Each unit of Super Starters revolves around a topic which will be familiar to young learners and which is included in the revised Starters syllabus e.g. Clothes, My Family, Face and body.
Super Starters emphasises natural, spoken English and encourages genuine communication between pupils.
Language in Super Starters is always introduced through a listening activity, so learners can see how it is used in context before practising it themselves.
Key language and structures are revised at regular intervals throughout the course.
Learner autonomy is encouraged through the use of activities, both in the Pupil’s Book and more extensively in the Activity Book.
