Insight Graded Readers – an insight into our fascinating world
Insight graded readers provide an enjoyable and structured way for students to learn about the world around them while improving their English. Each book contains fun and informative texts about our society, history, culture, physical environment and advances in science and technology.
Graded readers are written for people who are learning English as a foreign language. The language in each book is therefore graded for students with a particular level of English. The vocabulary and grammatical structures used are carefully chosen, so that they are appropriate for that level.
The first titles in the series are Maps, Mummies, Gods and Gladiators and A World of Difference, which were published in 2015. Further titles will be published soon.
Maps, Mummies, Gods and Gladiators takes an in-depth look at seven interesting topics related to geography and history, from life in the Yanomami tribe in the Amazon, to what it was like to be a gladiator in Ancient Rome. The book is particularly aimed at students in the first year of ESO, but the topics are of general interest, so it can be enjoyed by anyone who is learning English. More information

Why do bees and wasps both have black and yellow stripes? Who gave humans the name Homo sapiens? A World of Difference has the answers to those questions, as well as many others. The book covers seven fascinating scientific topics, including strange animals, the eradication of the disease smallpox and the mysterious Aurora Borealis. The book is particularly aimed at students in the first year of ESO, but the topics are of general interest, so it can be enjoyed by anyone who is learning English. More information
