Each of the two upper-level books contains 20 reading passages covering a range of highly interesting topics written in different text types.
Every unit begins with three or four Pre-Reading Questions to encourage students to think about issues related to the topic. The questions are designed for students lo work in pairs or small groups to develop their ability to make predictions and to understand information by drawing on their own knowledge and experience.
The Vocabulary Study section makes it convenient for students to look up the meanings of words and phrases highlighted in the reading passage.
The town of Spring ford woke to some shocking news yesterday. Police revealed that the body of a young woman had been found in a wooded area just outside the town. The person who made the grim discovery was 46-year-old Jim Bradley, who was walking his dog at the time.
He told our reporter earlier today. 'The dog's very well trained and usually he stays close to me. but on Thursday morning he went off like the clappers into the undergrowth. I could hear him. but I couldn't see him. I wasn't best pleased because I had intended staying on the path and wasn't wearing the right footwear for tramping through the undergrowth. When I eventually reached the dog I couldn't believe my eyes. He was scrabbling away at something buried in the ground and there was a human arm slicking out. I thought I was seeing things. I moved forward 10 lake a closer look and saw I hat the dog was in the process of uncovering a dead body.
