Discover the world through English with Dex.

Discover with Dex is a three-level course for teaching English at pre-primary level. It has been designed to provide a supportive and enjoyable learning context for young children to learn through play in English.

Meet the characters


Meet Dex, Charlie, Meg and Buddy!

Dex is a loveable and enthusiastic dinosaur – he is a little clumsy but always eager to learn about and engage with the world around him! He arrives in a prehistoric egg in the family’s garden at the start of the course. The family adopt him, and Dex’s adventures with Charlie, Meg and Buddy the dog begin. Your pupils’ language learning is brought to life through the stories, inviting them to connect with the world around them through English.
