This popular three-level reading series is designed for beginning through low-intermediate students. It features high-interest dialogues and stories about ordinary people from around the world (some famous) with whom the students can identify.

Each book features:
-- Relevant story topics that relate to student's lives.
-- Pre-reading and follow-up questions to check students comprehension and generate classroom conversation.
-- Word banks that precede each dialog and story to build basic vocabulary.
-- A cassette(s) that includes all the dialogues and stories from the text.

This text and workbook use stories and role-play dialogues to help students acquire a basic vocabulary, build fluency, improve pronunciation and intonation, and learn key aspects of American culture. Story topics are relevant to students' lives.
-- The Workbook reinforces and expands on the text with comprehension checks of the text's dialogues and stories and 48 new dialogues based on the same topics as the text.
