Hot Shots is an exciting new three-level course specially written for young learners in Greece and Cyprus.
Each level divided into 8 topic-related cycles. The cycles, which cover all skills, are of a manageable length and all 8 cycles can be completed in one school year.
There is also an on-going story in reader form linked to each unit and divided into eight episodes, which will not only help students revise and practice material learnt but will also capture their interest and motivated them to use the language. The story involves a group of children who enter a national song contest. Students watch the adventure unfold as the children overcome several obstacles on the way to stardom. There are also memorable songs which students will enjoy listening to and singing. The reader is brought to life in full animation in the Student’s e-book.
The Student’s Book is also accompanied by a Writing Booklet contained in a flap at the back of the Student’s Book. The Writing Booklet gives students the opportunity to practice and consolidate the vocabulary and grammar taught in the Student’s Book, and helps them to produce their own written material based on the writing models provided.
