It’s mid-summer and the temperature outside is so high that sensible people stay at home with the shutters closed and the air-conditioning at maximum. A private detective is therefore surprised to receive a phone call from the son of an important family. Will he agree to investigate the theft of a famous painting?
Learning Italian or French?
‘Easy readers’ (simplified texts with audio) are an ideal way to consolidate the grammar you’ve studied, improve your reading and listening comprehension, and learn new words.
And yet many language students don’t use them, preferring to concentrate on repetitive exercises.
Personally, I think that’s a mistake. Working through a story is much more interesting, and so motivating!
To encourage people to develop a habit of reading (and listening to) the language they’re studying, we’re therefore running a series of HALF PRICE ‘Book of the Week’ promotions.
For one week only, one of our ‘easy reader’ ebooks (.pdf format with online audio), which normally sells at £7.99, is available for only £3.99!
For that, you get:
- 7 simplified chapters to read and listen to
- Comprehension questions to check your understanding
- a glossary of ‘difficult’ terms for the level
This week’s easy reader offer is B1/2 level, so suitable for learners at intermediate level and above.
We have two versions, one set in Rome (the Italian version) and one in Paris (the French version).
Follow the links below to download the FREE SAMPLE CHAPTER in the language that you’re studying!
- ITALIAN version – Un furto ad arte – Free sample chapter (.pdf)
- FRENCH version – Un délit artificiel – Free sample chapter (.pdf)
But what if the free sample chapter is too easy or too hard for you?
Then use our catalogue page to find material that IS right for your level. There’s plenty to choose from!
