Each authentic reader contains edited transcripts of conversations with
people in Asia talking about their working lives. Readers enjoy an
intimate glimpse at various jobs as well as the cultures of the
interviewees. While these readers are not graded for second language
learners, they are naturally easier than most native speaker texts
because either the interviewer or interviewee was speaking a second
language, and many of the same occupation-related themes recur.
Recommended for school libraries and intermediate to advanced level
classes. Two worksheets are available on the PDF below. One gives
students the opportunity to consider the societal benefits and harms
that each occupation offers, and the other provides space for readers to
describe how appropriate each job is for them and why.
