Activities and resources to support written, visual and oral language learning

Written to captivate young learners, each book in this series offers a wide range of examples of texts. The examples include comprehension questions on content, purpose and audience along with activities analysing the written, visual and oral language features of the text. Supported by their enriched understanding and a detailed guide, students then have a springboard from which to produce their own samples incorporating the conventions, styles and techniques particular to the language focus.
