Based on the successful Building on Basics and Building Understanding books, the series has been expanded to cover low-intermediate to advanced students.

Features of World of Reading 2

Adapted authentic readings help students learn language for use inside and outside the classroom. Previewing activities stimulate background knowledge and introduce essential vocabulary to prepare students for readings. Vocabulary checks, side-by-side with the readings, call out essential vocabulary in context and help accelerate fluent reading. Comprehension and vocabulary sections develop students' ability to read authentic materials independently. Writing prompts offer opportunities for expression about the themes .
