This book is made up of 20 texts taken from The Japan News, one of Japan’s leading English-language newspapers.
The target users are students just starting out on reading English newspapers as well as students who experience difficulty dealing with longer texts. Accordingly, articles have been selected with word count and degree of difficulty in mind, and vocabulary particular to English-language newspapers is presented. In addition, the text is designed to extend all four skills and to improve note-taking ability, critical thinking, and self-expression. In addition to answers, the teacher’s manual contains translations, four tests, and supplementary tasks.
