Jell me about the skills resource books,
The reading & writing skills resource books series is a flexible photocopiable resource for teachers. At each level, you can use the material alongside the natural English student's book as extra topic-related skills work or on its own as a dip-in resource. The Lessons are based around topical, authentically-sourced texts and practise a range of reading and writing skills ideal for students who are on general English courses, doing academic studies, or working.

When parents help their children learn to read, they help open the door to a new world. As a parent, you can begin an endless learning chain: You read to your children, they develop a love of stories and poems, they want to read on their own, they practice reading, and finally they read for their own information or pleasure. They become readers, and their world is forever expanded and enriched.
