Open up students’ eyes to the world with authentic, relatable, and intercultural content, as seen through the point of view of a child. Make their learning experience authentic, introducing them to real life issues from around the world to empower them to become global citizens.

Open up students’ imagination with innovative vlog-style video content that is fun and engaging. Videos are presented in familiar formats to students to spark their curiosity for language learning and give them the motivation to stay curious.

Open up your students’ horizons and empower them to become global citizens. Give students access to the Oxford Community on Go Pangea and allow them to complete collaborative project tasks and interact with pen pals from around the world. Projects in the course develop learner engagement and ensure that students work together.

Open up your students’ feelings and aid in the development of their emotional wellbeing and self-awareness skills. The series has been developed with a strong emotional wellbeing strand to encourages students to discuss how they feel, including mindfulness practices to help calm and focus students and develop their emotional wellbeing skill.

Open Up’s relatable video content reflects the style of videos children watch today and inspires them to learn, while the course’s methodology develops their emotional wellbeing and helps them make sense of their world. The inclusion of My English Folder (levels 1 and 2) provides hands-on resources for children and both print and digital resources for the classroom for teachers interested in a flexible structure with a practical approach.

Choose between the Class Book and My English Folder for levels 1-2. Open Up lets you decide which is the best option for your younger students - a complete course book with engaging activities to help children develop communicative and fine motor skills, or a set of active learning resources that allow you to teach at your own pace.
