Hang Out is a series of fun textbooks for learners in primary school, going from level A1 to B1. I authored units for the first three books in the series. For each unit, I wrote a series of vocabulary recognition and practice activities tailored to younger students–lots of songs and chants and sticker activities and drawing. I also worked on reading comprehension activities, building basic reading skills such as recognizing organization patterns and linking sentences to paragraphs.
Each unit also featured a cartoon and lots of commissioned illustrations. One of the most fun projects I’ve worked on.
