This activity book is part of the new edition of the ever popular Chatterbox course for young beginners (7yrs and older).

A complete comic-strip adventure story runs through each book, featuring ace detective Captain Shadow. This provides a memorable context for new language and maintains motivation.

The book involves children in a variety of fun activities, such as songs, rhymes, games, and puzzles, which are all used to practise language in an enjoyable way, giving them a thorough grounding in the main language skills.

New Chatterbox brings this much loved series up-to-date with brand-new content reflecting changes in teaching practice and an increase in cross-cultural awareness. The core syllabus, structure, and approach remain the same.

The new Starter level makes the course ideal for complete beginners. Following are Level 1 and 2 by Derek Strange and Level 3 and 4 by Jackie Holderness.
