Birds do it. Cats do it. And Spaniards most certainly do it every day, in broad daylight. They nap. From exploring the siesta tradition to interviewing Bill Gates, this thought-provoking, delightfully fresh and futuristic collection of readings features full-color photos, art, and highlighted language boxes. Each chapter opens with an illustration, provocative quote, and chapter focus key. This is followed by a Before You Read section, the reading passage, two post-reading activities, a section for applying a new reading skill, vocabulary building, and a focus on important grammatical structures and functions. Bonus features include crossword puzzles, full-color maps, vocabulary glosses, and culture notes. All passages are recorded on an optional cassette. These readings are ideal “springboards” to further language exploration!
