New Tree Top 1–8 is a two-book course in English that endeavours to create independent learners for the 21st century, who can learn, unlearn and re-learn. The series has been revised based on user feedback to make it user-friendly and relevant. The harmonious layout and the attractive illustrations provide an easy reading experience. The course encourages the students to practise using language within a literal communicative context where real information is exchanged; where the language used is not totally predictable. The course also aims to develop higher order thinking skills (HOTS).
