  • To the Student:

    Welcome to CANA and Welcome to English class for beginners! Let me congratulate you for having the courage to learn another language. Maybe this will be your second language or your third language. If so, by now you know it is not that easy. But you have the determination to succeed. Remember there is no progress without work and dedication. Be patience with yourself and dont worry about making mistakes; mistakes are necessary to learn. You must believe you can learn English. Persistence always wins.

    This course is designed for adult students who have limited knowledge or just the basics of the English language. We are confident that this textbook will help you improve your English skills.

    English class for beginners is a textbook intended to be used for oral practices in the class-room with a partner or working in groups under the supervision of an instructor. Different exercises will be given each week such as reading and listening exercises.

    The material is divided in 12 lessons containing vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation exercises. Each lessons are based on daily and practical situations such as shopping for groceries, asking for directions, introducing yourself, ordering a meal, etc.

    All the exercises in English for beginners are designed to be functional. We are using practi-cal and situational conversations that we believe will give you immediate tools to put in practice right a way.

    We think youll enjoy learning English and using this textbook at CANA. It is our firm belief that you will improve. At the end of the course you will be speaking a functional English. We wish you the best!
