Day-by-Day English is one of the most well-known English courses in southern Africa. The course is integrated across the Foundation Phase Learning Areas and enables learners to meet the requirements of the Language, Literacy and Communication learning area through the integrated use of listening, speaking, viewing, reading and writing. Learning is organised thematically and emphasises language as communication. The Learner's Books include stories, poems, songs, games and activities which encourage imagination and creativity. A variety of real-life situations ensure that learners practise language in context in a thorough and integrated way. A 'talking parrot' highlights conventions and structures so that learners become aware of language patterns. Full-colour Wallcharts are enlarged versions of important pages in the Learner's Books and encourage learners to interact with the material. The new, brightly-illustrated Readers make reading stimulating and enjoyable. They use vocabulary from the Learner's Books and provide excellent opportunities for learners to read on their own, in pairs and in groups.
Easy-to-use Teacher's Guides provide teaching suggestions for each unit of the Learner's Book and give ideas to make learning fun. Opportunities to expand learners' language awareness and promote multilingualism are also highlighted and assistance with continuous assessment is included throughout.show more
