The English Express Beginner Workbook is a topic-based workbook for adult learners of English. It is ideal for learners at beginner level. They may already know the letters of the alphabet, say numbers up to 10, sight read a few words, and greet people. But they may not yet be able to interact in everyday situations, such as buying a coffee or making a medical appointment.

 

There are 9 topics in the book which present language in the context of everyday situations and texts. Each topic is accompanied by several animated videos, which help the learner develop their listening and pronunciation. The videos are conveniently hosted online. The book is set in an Australian context, however, if you are in a different country, the book may still be very useful to you.

Available in an Individual Licence (for one teacher to share with their own current students) or a Team Licence (for one site of an institution). If you buy an Individual Licence, and later, your employer buys a Team Licence, you can request a refund (within 12 months).  See the Terms of Use for more details. Visit the store.
