Book 2 in the well-received speed reading series. Develops English reading comprehension through appealing topics.

This is a practice book for a multi-skills text designed to extend listening and reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. Compared to the basic text (written at around the 230-headword level), tackling this 300-word level text will promote an interest in reading by satisfying students’ intellectual curiosity through stimulating content. After reading the main text, a summary dictation exercise will boost listening skills, and for increasing vocabulary, there is an exercise that requires students to extract from the main text expressions that have the same meaning. The teacher’s manual contains practice questions for each unit and two regular tests.
