Summary

Especially written for intermediate to high-intermediate students, Building on Basics and Building Understanding feature authentic, thematically organized readings from nonfiction, academic, and literary sources. The high-interest topics and thematically linked readings effectively build students' background knowledge and vocabulary for later readings. With their increased knowledge of a topic, students will have more to talk, think, and write about as they acquire English.

Interactive pre-reading activities, varied comprehension exercises, writing and discussion activities and text analyses develop students' academic skills and encourage oral and written skills.
