The World of Little Bridge:
Using extremely high production values, the ‘look’ of Little Bridge is breathtaking. From the first glimpses of the town in the introductory movie, to the huge variety of 3D animations embedded in the program, the Little Bridge visuals are second to none. This attention to quality and detail is truly unique in an ‘education package’.
Walk around the town and you’re immediately immersed in this ‘virtual’ world. Whether you simply want to wander at your leisure, or take part in the specially created ‘search’ activities, you’re experiencing life in this little English town.
The wide range of characters who live in Little Bridge (different ages, ethnicities, family groups, interests) means there is always someone to engage and identify with. Young Rose with her dreamy, gentle nature is a particular favourite, as is cheeky and mischievous Matthew, sporty James and serious Geeta - and of course there’s Domino, the loveable, fun-loving dog!
With Little Bridge you are invited to share in daily routines, special days and festivals. You can visit the shop, the sports ground and the school and discover what friends in Little Bridge are doing. Key cultural features are highlighted and this friendly English speaking world becomes both fascinating and familiar. The ‘real, human’ element is at the product’s heart. Using great imagery, together with well crafted stories, poems and music, which again combine quality writing with great production values and a real feel for a young audience - and the irresistible world of Little Bridge comes to life.
Learning acquisition, often seen as ‘abstract’, is real and meaningful with Little Bridge, through the simple urge to understand and the desire to join in. But nothing is left to chance! ‘Behind the scenes’ there is a carefully built structure of presentation, practice and recycling of key language , to ensure the best foundations in language learning are laid . (Little Bridge Levels 1-6 based on the Cambridge ESOL syllabus: ‘Starters, Movers and Flyers’).
And keeping children motivated to learn is what Little Bridge is all about. The variety and visual appeal of the practice activities, together with the ‘randomisation’ of routines – ensures they are freshly
attractive every time – whilst scorekeeping and the achievement of personal ‘bests’ inspires children to achieve - all warmly encouraged by Domino the Dog!
Teacher support is assured, with a thorough and easy to use Guide, which includes lesson plans, a wealth of engaging activities and hints and tips to reinforce language and culture. And the Little Bridge course is compatible with both the Cambridge ESOL exams (Starters, Movers, Flyers) and is aligned with the Common European Framework at levels A1 and A2.
Every classroom license comes with an Audio CD and printable Flashcards and Copymasters to provide variety and options and to suit a wide range of teaching styles.
The high quality, full colour, great value, Pupil Activity Books are fully integrated with the rest of the resource, providing children with their own record of achievement as well as encouraging the important skills of reading and writing. Homework tasks can be linked to practice activities in the software.
