Stage 1 is for students who are beginning to learn English. It introduces some of the most important words and structures in the language. In Stage 1, students learn the verbs “be” and “have”, the present continuous (e.g. “you are writing”), subject and object pronouns (“I”, “she”, “me”, “them” etc.), possessive adjectives (“my”, “his”, “our” etc.) and much indispensible basic vocabulary. This stage is appropriate for learners who are just starting their studies, or who are at the low end of A1 level according to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference).
