Rise and Shine

Empower every child to reach their potential and shine!

Based on extensive research in Spain, and in complete alignment with the new curriculum, Rise and Shine is a new 6-level Primary course built on the unique Shine methodology.

Rise and Shine is designed to ensure quality education and equal opportunities for all children, and to build children's English language abilities while simultaneously equipping them with the competences they need to meet the demands of the global world of today and tomorrow.

Choose Rise and Shine if:

  • You teach 3 to 5 sessions of English a week.
  • You expect some children to be ready to go a bit further or take an extra challenge.
  • You have time to use an additional fun booklet to practise in class or at home.
  • You have classes of children with a diverse range of previous English knowledge who mostly need additional activities and extension resources.
  • You prepare your students for external examinations such as Cambridge English Young Learners and Cambridge English A2 Key.
  • You expect your students to reach A2+ level by the end of Primary.
