This is a multi-skills textbook that deals with current and future scientific topics such as ‘sleep in animals’, ‘clean energy’, ‘black holes’, ‘flying cars’ and ‘the Hayabusa spacecraft’. The contents cover the four fields of living organisms, the environment, future technology and cutting-edge space technology. In addition to the reading texts, the book contains exercises to improve writing and speaking skills. At the end of each chapter there is related information as well as exercises to promote discussion. The teacher’s manual contains a mini-test for each unit, mid-term tests, and a final exam.
