Overview
Short and Easy. The 160 readings in the series are brief and easy to read, as the titles indicate, going from an average of 50 words per passage to 125. For the launched beginner, they are accessible and comprehensible, using only 600 different words in Book One, Read 50.
A Variety of Forms. The passages are not just prose paragraphs. They include various forms of the written language that a learner needs to deal with – graphs, charts, timetables, receipts, emails, blogs, maps, posters, as well as journals, recipes, and bio-sketches. In short, the passages are a reflection of the reading that we all do every day.
Our Global Village. The passages also invite the reader into the global village we all live in. Book One begins with a brief trip on the Amazon; then takes us to Mount Fuji, south to the Great Barrier Reef; then to New York City, the Iditarod in Alaska, London, and the Calgary Stampede in Canada.
Language Skills. Each reading is followed by three exercises that, in effect, bring the reader back for another look at the reading. The first exercise asks the reader to use vocabulary from the reading in a different context to explore the meaning and usage of the word. The second exercise asks the reader to use basic reading skills to fully comprehend the passage. The third exercise focuses on a point of grammar that occurs in the reading.
