Abstract

Doodle Town is a captivating 4-level pre-primary course designed to stimulate the imagination of young learners and inspire learning through a range of visual, audio and hands-on activities.

Using a language-rich syllabus that incorporates artwork and drawing, Doodle Town promotes memory, experience, imagination and observation by blending phonetics, songs, stories, projects and values into an easy-to-follow and rigorous curriculum. This diverse pedagogical approach helps form well-rounded, confident and successful young learners of English, introduces them to collaboration, learner independence, problem solving, and encourages creativity.

Doodle Town was nominated as a finalist in the British Council 2018 ELTon Awards in the Excellence in Course Innovation category. Selected from over 110 ELT products, publications and services from around the world. Doodle Town was also shortlisted for the 2018 English-Speaking Union awards.
