New to English rapidly builds English language skills and confidence in students 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 is focused on the vocabulary of particular environments that all students need to become familiar with: At School, In the House, and At the Shopping Mall. Students explore the settings in detail, moving to different areas at their own pace.
The activities focus on listening, speaking, reading, and writing, targeting the language skills students need to access the curriculum. High quality recorded speech is used for all the activities, and new words are introduced and reinforced at a careful pace.
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, repeating their recording as many times as they wish.
New to English also works well with groups of students at a similar level working together. Use your interactive whiteboard to make learning a social experience and get students communicating with each other.
As students engage in a range of activities that involve active listening, speaking, reading, and writing, they begin to understand key words and phrases. Their new language development is reinforced and enhanced
through consolidation activities.
