Course Name: English Voyage Level 7

Level: Primary 6 – Secondary 2

No. of Lessons: 10 (Suggested)

Lesson Duration: 80 mins (Suggested)

  • To introduce a range of useful, transferable vocabulary and phrases
  • To introduce new grammar and sentence structures
  • To allow students to practise using target language in relevant contexts and real-life interactions
  • To build students’ confidence in speaking English in a safe and encouraging space
  • To give students a valuable, enjoyable experience learning English


In this English Voyage course, students are taught through a ‘spiral approach’. The flow of each lesson includes sequencing reception and production activities, both of which gradually prepare students for more complex, open-ended speaking tasks.

Students are encouraged to apply the linguistic skills learned in lessons to real-life conversations and situations; the speaking tasks give them plenty of opportunity to practise this, as well as getting used to applying the most appropriate words and phrases in different contexts. The sample dialogues are designed to mirror the language used by native English speakers in everyday interactions. Other spoken activities include paired and group discussions and presentations, to give students the chance to communicate spontaneously and express themselves in English. Our creative activities allow students to thrive and challenge themselves in a comfortable environment, where they can simply enjoy learning in the classroom.

The topics are interesting, engaging and well-suited to upper primary students. Students are invited to tap into their real-world knowledge and experience, meaning they also benefit from the student-centred learning aspect of this course.
