Reading Explorer is a six-level reading series which uses carefully
adapted National Geographic text, images and video to develop
reading and vocabulary skills for learners of English. Stunning
real-world content supported by stunning visuals develops learners'
understanding of the wider world in which they live. Reading
passages introduce a variety of text types, develop visual
literacy, and incorporate graphic organizers, to help learners
become better readers in English. Reading Comprehension activities
include question types commonly found on high-stakes international
exams. Vocabulary Practice activities build awareness of
high-frequency vocabulary items and provide additional
mini-passages for reading practice. Vocabulary Builder boxes
highlight common collocations, affixes, and usage to develop
learner independence. Video Activities include step-by-step
activities for additional comprehension and vocabulary practice
while motivating students to learn more about a topic. Review Units
recycle vocabulary and reading skills through a vocabulary review
and a magazine-like spotlight on UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
