Each unit begins with vocabulary relevant to the theme and is accompanied by questions to be answered orally.
This is followed by a picture-essay requiring an oral and written response.
Literary and factual texts feature in each unit, which conclude with a letter in the Leaving Certificate format.
Finally, model sentences based on the theme are provided for students to memorise are provided at the end of each unit.
