TEAMMATES 1 is the first book of the TEAMMATES series. Pupils acquire a basic (Beginner’s) knowledge of the English language with the help of Anna, Diego, Lucy, Masako and Omar, who have never met each other but manage to form an excellent relationship online, and become 'teammates'.
The Coursebook starts with the ''What can you remember?'' section, which helps pupils revise their previous knowledge. The Coursebook contains 14 units, each of which is divided into the following sections: online chat, reading text, vocabulary, grammar, skills activities and 'Around the World'. This clear, consistent structure means that pupils know what to expect and what is expected of them at each stage of every lesson.
Before each set of 3 units, there is a fun page with a song (that introduces pupils to some new vocabulary from the next 3 units), a riddle, a joke and a ‘Wordsnake’ activity that revises previous vocabulary. This page also presents the objectives of the three units that follow.
After each 3-unit set, there is a comic strip story which unfolds in episodes. This is a fun break that motivates students and creates the conditions for further discussion. A revision section and a self-assessment questionnaire follow. These encourage pupils to monitor their progress, take responsibility for their learning and become more aware of any problem areas they may have to work on.
