Navio: The digital solution for teaching and learning English.

Pupils personalise their own avatar before becoming immersed in a 3D world that they discover as they complete activities in English, gaining rewards and knowledge as they go, accompanied by their avatar guides. With intuitive navigation and a gamified environment, pupils are motivated to progress through the levels.

Teachers enjoy a seamless transition between the course book and digital teaching activities, with the option to track both individual and class progress and allocating additional rewards and points. With both online and offline access to the Macmillan Education Teacher’s App.

Families feel reassured knowing that children are practising English in a safe and enjoyable digital environment, strengthening the home-school connection.

How New Tiger helps you create an inclusive learning environment

We know each learner has different strengths and weaknesses, and learns best in different ways. In order to build on individual capabilities, helping students to learn and teachers to create an inclusive learning environment, each of our courses provides a range of components and methodology that helps you to meet the needs of everyone in your classroom.


  • New Tiger has been designed to cater for the inclusion of pupils of all abilities.
  • As well as the reinforcement and extension worksheets, this course has a choice of two activity books: the Activity Book and Essential Activity Book.
  • Both include the same contents and language, but the latter places greater emphasis on receptive skills.
  • The message of inclusion is reinforced visually by featuring coursebook characters from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and the ‘Culture’ sections promote familiarity with other cultures and comparison with pupils’ own culture.


  • Activity Book / Essentials Activity Book: the option of two Activity Books, one standard and one with a greater emphasis on receptive skills for pupils who need more reinforcement and consolidation, allows teachers to choose which version is more suitable for each learner.



  • Reinforcement and Extension worksheets help challenge more-able learners and support less-able learners.




  • Extension materials (in Advantage) also help challenge learners with higher ability levels.
