We are delighted to share that Oxford University Press, International Schools section of the Educational Division, has just published a 160 page, four colour, paperback textbook that includes an interview with Hunter Emigh based on the story from Slurping Soup “Home country, what’s that?”
The book is titled Oxford International English: Student Book 5 by Myra Murby, Izabella Hearn and Moira Brown.
It is one of a series of 6 classroom books for primary school students aged between 5 and 11 studying at International and English medium schools in various countries around the world. They are following a range of curricula from local to international such as CIE and will be a mix of English first and second language students. Each book has ten units, each containing one fiction text, one non-fiction text and one poem or playscript with exercises and activities for classroom work.
Here are the glowing comments about Slurping Soup from Lynne Humphreys, Commissioning Editor, International Primary, Oxford University Press:
“I think Slurping Soup is very much needed in a world where more and more young people experience international transition throughout their childhood and educational years. The fact that Slurping Soup includes the children’s own ‘voices’ is very important and unique. I was delighted to be able to retell some of the stories and experiences of Slurping Soup’ children within the Oxford International English student books. The Slurping Soup idea could be a fantastic resource for students, parents and teachers in international education.”
