This series of readers offers support to both teachers and students. The
series caters to a wide range of tastes, with traditional and modern
titles, and fact and fiction. It uses the same grading scheme as the Oxford
Bookworms series, from Starter to Stage 2. There are full colour
illustrations throughout, and a larger than usual format, to help to make
the stories more accessible. At the end of every chapter or section, two
pages of integrated activities help students to understand what they have
read. Five pages of project work at the end of each reader give further
ideas on how students can get the most out of the text and a glossary on
each page provides full vocabulary support. The series should be suitable
both for students working individually and for teachers wishing to support
reading with class activities. Cassettes are available as reinforcement and
to enhance enjoyment.
