Purposeful Design's English as a foreign language series, Passport to Adventure, was developed by an international team of language learning professionals to provide flexibility to meet the unique needs of many student groups.
Each lesson in this series helps teachers and students explore the world beyond their classrooms through learning a foreign language. The children will learn English in engaging and creative ways — through songs and chants, vivid color pictures, and many fun and age-appropriate activities.
Most importantly, the children will learn and practice important moral and spiritual principles while they are learning English. This values-based series is designed to teach children how to live more caring, responsible, worshipful lives.
