This is 'a beginner's online course with video and audio.' However, it could also be used as an interactive textbook.
'There are 22 episodes, themed according to language topics such as directions, shopping, etc. You can check the full breakdown in the syllabus
Each episode is a combination of real-action video with language teaching and practice, focused on developing communicative skills. The language is presented in small bitesize chunks when it's needed. Learners are encouraged to practise and to speak out loud to the characters they encounter.
Each episode should take no more than 20-30 minutes to complete for an absolute beginner. Learners can then be encouraged to watch the full episode or some of the key scenes more than once.
Each episode is accompanied by a consolidation learning section, bringing together all the key vocabulary, explaining the grammar structures and providing extra practice. All these pages are printable either from within the section or from the syllabus and printouts page.
Learners can also review the key scenes, tagged with the key language objective, by using the orange bar at the top of the video screen.'
'The key language has been introduced in small functional chunks per episode, focusing on one communicative topic. In the Learning Sections, which accompany each episode, the eight key words and phrases and main grammar point are presented. Another 16 words and a secondary grammar point are also available, as well as three or four activities for practice.
The topics are revisited and built upon in different episodes. For example, episode 2 presents the simplest form of ordering food and drink, and episode 5 builds upon it, with more complex structures and vocabulary.'
