Fluency Course 2021 ed.

It has evolved again

I am once again here to explain how our materials are evolving without being able to provide a firm date you will be able to order them, prices, or any other useful information.

The good news is that the latest evolution has made them much more user-friendly and more commercially viable.

The bad news is that we are unlikely to have them ready for people to order before March.

As we discussed in September last year (September? Really? Feels like several years ago), we were able to consolidate the speaking cards into worksheets and thus remove a hugely time-consuming and expensive constraint. After using the worksheets for several months, I can happily say they are just as good as the index cards were, and much more user-friendly.

However, five textbooks per year, plus a bunch of extra things that would need to be downloaded/printed, was not ideal.

So now we have managed to consolidate the components even more, and will end up with the following for each level:

Fluency Course 1 (aimed at JHS 1st years or 2nd years)

Textbook 1a (units 1-24) 230 pages
Textbook 1b (units 25-48) 230 pages
Workbook 1 (units 1-48) 100 pages

All components are incorporated into the textbook now.

Fluency Course 2 (aimed at JHS 2nd years or 3rd years)

Textbook 2a (units 1-24) 200+ pages
Textbook 2b (units 25-48) 200+ pages
Workbook 2 (units 1-48) 100 pages

All components are incorporated into the textbook now.

Fluency Course 3 (aimed at JHS 3rd years or high school students)

Textbook 3a (units 1-24) 200+ pages
Textbook 3b (units 25-48) 200+ pages

All components are incorporated into the textbook now.

I know it has been a long wait, but the materials have definitely improved in the latest iteration so hopefully it will be worth it. There should be samples available this year, and some small orders may be possible.
