Cool Chat Connected is a three-level program with an additional Intro level for beginners. It is meant especially for adolescents who have already studied some English in their elementary school years and who need to progress rather than start again. The Intro book can be used as a bridge level to bring students up to the level of the general class or to teach total beginners.
The series is based on communicative, constructivist language acquisition process, featuring TPR, songs, chants, social practices, strategies, cooperative learning, self-assessment, hands-on projects, values and games.
It features many cool phrases and expressions that American teenagers use to communicate among themselves in a lively, practical, fun way.
Cool Chat Connected is authored by two of the best known and respected names in ELT whose books are used by millions of students around the world: Mario Herrera for the texts and Carolyn Graham for the songs and chants.
