Say Hello 1 Pupil's Book
by West, Judy Published by Delta Publishing
Say Hello is a two level Kindergarten English course for four to five year olds. The course is written by Judy West, who has extensive experience in both teaching and writing materials for young learners.
Say Hello is based around two engaging characters Tom and Polly together with their friend Ben the Bear. At the heart of the methodology lies an emphasis on child-centred activities and the puppet of Ben the Bear plays a key part in these.
