Are you ready for a super adventure?
Welcome to Super Safari, an exciting English course for very young learners. At Cambridge University Press we believe that the first learning experience is the start of a life-long adventure.
We have developed Super Safari to help children prepare for that journey in a fun and lively way, to build confidence in their abilities, and to develop an appreciation for learning.
Super Safari 1 and 2 are perfect for young learners who are completely new to English. To help them get used to learning in a group, Super Safari develops key linguistic and interpersonal skills while allowing for as much play time as possible. The approach ensures that children using Super Safari begin their English-learning journey with enthusiasm and confidence.
The friendly and colourful animal characters in the course accompany children into the new world of learning through exciting stories. Fun chants, physical games and songs gradually develop listening and speaking together with fine motor skills in preparation for writing.
Super Safari 3 is ideal for learners who have already had some exposure to English. There is controlled introduction to word recognition, giving children a head start for reading and writing at Primary level.
We wish you and your young learners lots of fun exploring Super Safari.
Join Super Safari, for a super start to learning!
