Code Blue

A lively exam preparation course for teenagers
This is a truly blended-learning course for teenagers. It aims to build their general English skills while gently easing them into more tailored PET and FCE exam practice.
The interactive and digital elements will appeal to teenage students and motivate them to learn. The clear yet integrated approach develops reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, whilst there is a systematic build-up of topic-based lexis and lexico-grammar. This is ideal for teenagers preparing for school-leaving exams.
