Elementary English is the first level of teaching that the English Club TV provides for their students. Altogether the classes comprise of five levels namely Elementary (A1), Pre-intermediate (A2), Intermediate (B1), Upper-intermediate (B2), and Advanced (C1). Each programme addresses student groups of a certain knowledge level and effortlessly improves their knowledge and equips them for the next level. However, some levels such as the Elementary level provide lessons which are suitable for students in other levels such as Pre-intermediate and Intermediate.
The basics in Elementary English
The Elementary (A1) is the basic course of English language. However, it structures the foundation for a stable grounding to reach the advanced level and beyond. The difference between English Club TV Elementary English teaching and that of others is the former’s friendly approach towards students who are poor in their English knowledge. The English Club TV addresses them clearly and encourages them to learn the language with simple teaching steps which do not involve the use of a lot of stationery work and written exercises.
Elementary English: Self-learning
Most of the sessions of Elementary English do not go beyond the self-learning approach. Students improve their English vocabulary at ease and learn a multitude of meanings of words and their pronunciations from memory without memorising them day and night. They simply understand English through learning English and naturally learn grammar in a straightforward manner. With each episode, students just gain self-evaluation and understand that they are a step nearer to the Advanced level.
The English Club TV provides a range of programmes to achieve the familiar targets such as Basic Lexis, ECTV’s Simple News, Grammar Wise 2nd Season, Here and There, Perfect English, and Say It Right.

The first on the list, ‘Basic Lexis’ caters to beginners’ knowledge and improves it step by step. Native teachers of the United Kingdom conduct the programme using a simple format. They introduce words and their meanings by displaying related objects and events. Each stage talks about a different topic and associated words and graphics to absorb students in the running episode.
