Good reading skills are a result of practice: the more students read, the better readers they become. And the more interesting and relevant a text is, the more they'll be motivated to read! This is the simple premise taken by the authors of this upbeat, exciting reader that presents lively, contemporary topics in a variety of formats. To ensure that students keep practicing their reading skills, "Worldbeat" features a variety of interactive activities and exercises for each reading selection and uses a wide range of photos, charts, illustrations, and realia for continual reinforcement. Vocabulary exercises, pre-reading sections, skimming and scanning activities, and discussion questions are examples of the reading strategies found in each chapter. Communicative exercises and activities - including a number of partner and group exercises, and a lively interview activity - are stressed in each chapter. Authentic materials such as newspaper articles, job ads, clothing labels, maps, and television listings appear in abundance. Grammar and vocabulary are carefully controlled for the low intermediate level.
