Using Frisby English

This course range has been developed by Frisby College in collaboration with experienced Thailand educators to produce a very successful way of learning English. Materials use modern topics with practical activities that are interesting for secondary school level learners.
The Matthayom Series includes 6 English proficiency levels from Beginner to Advanced.

What is included with each course level?
Each course level includes a course book, workbook, vocabulary book (A1-B1) and notebook for students. These materials follow the activities and tasks presented in the EP Schemes of Work and the directed lesson plans provided to teachers. Students also receive personal notebooks for making notes and recording new vocabulary presented.
Scheme of Work
Schemes of Work act as a master blueprint for teachers to follow throughout the course of study. They present a list of themes, module topics and grammatical lessons covered at each course level, showing how they relate to the learning objectives mapped from each common reference level.
Workbooks provide additional study tasks and practice exercises to further develop students’ understanding and confidence with topics and grammar learnt from each corresponding course book.
Personal notebooks are provided for students to make notes and build their own vocabulary bank. Lexical range is an important aspect of learning English using the ‘Frisby Method’ and enables students to keep a record of new words and meanings learnt as they progress through English levels.
Course books introduce module topics and directed study tasks in relation to the grammatical lessons being taught throughout each course. Students can track the benefits of each activity and the skills they help with improving by using the task study key.
Vocabulary Book (A1-B1)
Vocabulary books for CEFR A1-B1 provide a set list of words for students to learn from beginner to intermediate levels. These words help with structuring English grammar and pronunciation more effectively.
