  • Multilingual introduction and glossary of difficult words translated into Spanish, Catalan, Basque and Galician in every reader.
  • Vocabulary and comprehension activities integrated after every two chapters in ESO and after every three chapters in Bachillerato, to consolidate students’ understanding and develop their ability to use textual and visual information.
  • Did You Know? boxes with interesting information related to the content of the reader.
  • Cross-curricular pages at the end of each reader, to enrich students’ general knowledge by expanding upon a theme from the story.
  • Student’s website materials with MP3 recordings, comprehension activities, vocabulary games, book report tasks and a progress report (ESO), and web-based activities (Bachillerato), available in the Student’s Zone.
