READERS “The habit of reading is the only enjoyment in which there is no alloy; it lasts when all other pleasures fade.” Anthony Trollope

F

or many teachers of English, a central goal of the curriculum is to foster a love of reading. An engagement with fiction and non-fiction texts enhances the languagelearning process for students of all levels and ages. Teachers teaching English as a second language will find graded readers that allow them to teach reading intensively in the second language, letting their students produce individual sentences, read aloud, and work through short passages in coursebooks or exam practice papers. The texts in the Macmillan Readers series include everything from abridged classics to original writing, in a range of genres from thrillers to romances, as well as non-fiction texts. Teachers in charge of independent learners, who want to read for pleasure and improve their English in their own time, will find extra support for independent English language learning on our website, www.macmillanreaders.com Writing practice: creative and academic writing worksheets • Tips on how to use readers in the classroom • Webquests • Extensive listening audio exercises • Level tests and answer keys for students progressing through the Macmillan Readers grades • Film tie-in titles • Themed reading collections • Self-study worksheets • Background information sheets, articles and interviews with authors about the stories behind the books • Book club and reading corner for students • An email newsletter •

I, Robot

Diamonds are Forever

Isaac Asimov, retold by Tricia Reilly Science fiction/Thriller

Ian Fleming, retold by John Escott Adventure/Romance/Thriller

‘1 A robot must not harm a human. And it must not allow a human to be harmed. 2 A robot must obey a human’s order, unless that order conflicts with the First Law. 3 A robot must protect itself, unless this protection conflicts with the First or Second Laws. Handbook of Robotics, 2058 A.D.’

In Diamonds are Forever, Bond is sent to investigate a dangerous diamond smuggling gang which is run by the American mafia. The story begins in Africa, moves to London and ends in Las Vegas. There Bond and the beautiful Tiffany Case must escape the fury of the gang’s leaders, the evil Spang brothers.

Isaac Asimov’s classic collection of stories about a society where humans and robots live and work together on earth and in outer space, is both disturbing and prophetic.

The author and his work

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Pre-intermed

In 1844, Tolstoy began studying law and Oriental languages at Kazan University. But he found university life difficult. He was not good at academic studies and his teachers said that he was ‘both unable and unwilling to learn’. He also had problems in his social life. He thought that he was very ugly because of his large nose, thick eyebrows and big lips. He had few close friends apart from his brothers and very little self-confidence with women. Most girls thought he was boring.

eo Nikolaevich Tolstoy was one of Russia’s greatest writers. He was born on August 28th, 1828, at Yasnaya Polyana, his father’s house in the country. Unlike other Russian novelists of the time, Tolstoy was from a wealthy background. His family was one of the oldest in Russia. At that time, there was an enormous gap between the wealthy landowners and the peasants who worked on the landowners’ farms. Tolstoy admired the peasants’ way of life, and thought that they were more honest than the landowners.

Tolstoy’s two greatest works of literature are War and Peace (1863–9) and Anna Karenina (1875–7). Both novels describe Russian society and deal with the major themes of love, death and marriage. In Anna Karenina, there is a character called Levin, a wealthy landowner much like Tolstoy. Levin is from a rich background but prefers to work on his estate in the country. Like Tolstoy, Levin wants to help the peasants and improve their lives. Tolstoy’s early years were spent at Yasnaya and Moscow. He lost both his parents when he was very young. His mother died when he was two and his father died when he was nine. Shortly after his father’s death, his grandmother died too. The loss of his family made Tolstoy think seriously about the themes of life and death from a very early age.

Tolstoy left the university without finishing his degree. He spent the next few years enjoying the same pleasures as other wealthy young men – wine, playing cards and women. He started writing, and his first novel, Childhood, was published in 1852. But he was always searching for a deeper meaning to life. So in 1851 he decided to change his life and join the army as an officer. In 1854 the Crimean War began and, later that year, Tolstoy saw the fighting against the British and French at Sevastopol. When he was there he wrote some articles called the Sevastopol Sketches, which were very popular. But the loss of life filled him with horror. Tolstoy left the army in 1855 and spent several years travelling between Moscow, St Petersburg, Yasnaya and foreign countries. This was the only time in Tolstoy’s life when he mixed with other Russian writers. But he found their way of life too relaxed and he often argued with them. In spite of this, Turgenev, one of the great Russian authors of the time, admired Tolstoy very much. Turgenev called Tolstoy’s 1862 novel, The Cossacks, ‘the best story written in our language’. In 1860, Tolstoy’s beloved elder brother Nikolai died, and the death affected him deeply. He began to feel a strong need to get married. But he was worried that no woman could love him because he was too old and ugly. In 1862, he asked a young woman, Sofia Andreyevna Behrs, to marry him. Sofia, the youngest daughter of a wealthy family, was sixteen years younger than Tolstoy. But she accepted him and they were married on September 23rd. Tolstoy and Sofia had fifteen very happy years together. Sofia was an excellent wife, mother and housekeeper. The couple had thirteen children, although five died in childhood. Sofia also helped her husband with his work, and copied out his long novel War and Peace seven times from beginning to end. The family had plenty of money, both from the sales of Tolstoy’s works, and from his land. Leo Tolstoy 1

An interview with Vikas Swarup, author of Slumdog Millionaire

An interview with Vikas Swarup, author of Slumdog Millionaire Did you always want to be a writer? Not really. I used to write in my school days but did not write a word of fiction for almost twenty years before I wrote Slumdog Millionaire, my first novel.

What do you find easiest/most enjoyable/ most difficult about writing novels? Writing is an incredibly lonely process, but for me it is the means to tell a story. I think one of the pleasures of writing is to see a fictional character take a life of his or her own and then work his or her way into the minds of those who read the published novel.

How do you plan your novels – for example, do you start with the character or the plot? Both are important. The plot should be interesting enough to make you want to turn the page and find out what happens next. And the characters should be believable enough to make you laugh or cry. Because my books have rather detailed plots, I first think of the ending and then work backwards.

In our Macmillan Reader Note About The Story, we learn that you got the idea for Slumdog Millionaire from watching Who Wants to be a Millionaire. What appealed to you so much about the idea of a street boy winning the quiz? This quiz show is really about the power of money and the kinds of people who are expected to do well on the show are people who read books and go to schools and universities. So I thought it would be interesting to have a contestant who has not had a formal education, who has ‘street’ knowledge rather than ‘book’ knowledge. Moreover, the contestant does not come to the quiz show for the money.

What do you feel were the main differences between the book and the film of Slumdog Millionaire? Were there any changes that made you unhappy? Slumdog Millionaire is an incredible piece of cinema with some amazing performances, brilliant music and original cinematography. It does differ from my novel in some important ways (for example, my novel was about luck while the film is clearly about destiny), but it also keeps the soul of my novel. The entire narrative structure is borrowed from my book. My book was about survival and hope and the triumph of the underdog1 and the same things can be said about the film. Many of the characters in the film are also from the book. But I was sorry to see that Ram Mohammad Thomas had become Jamal Malik. His unusual name, combining three religions, had an important message for our times.

Courses BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE LEARNERS OF ENGLISH

Colin Granger and Katherine Stannett Hot Spot is a course designed for the ‘betweenagers’ age group. Fun and engaging, it makes the most of the growing identity of the young teenager through motivating texts and stories, and lively illustrations and photography. Each book contains seven theme-based modules made up of three double-page presentation lessons, a cross-cultural integrated skills lesson, a ‘can do’ review section, and a fun ‘Extra special’ lesson. The course has a transparent grammar syllabus which progresses steadily throughout the course, encouraging a discovery approach before practising and then personalising the grammar. There is a balance of skills work through the lessons, and the four skills are practised further in the integrated skills lesson which focuses on a cultural or cross-curricular aspect of the module theme. Providing a focus on the UK and other English-speaking countries, Hot Spot offers a wealth of culturally rich content that will interest and motivate young teenagers learning English.

Key features • ‘Check your English’ activities at the end of every lesson encourage learners to take responsibility for their language learning in line with the CEF • Grammar references and further practice can be found in the illustrated grammar summary at the back of the Student’s Book • Pronunciation activities in every module focus on common pronunciation problems using rhythm drills, intonation, stress patterns and vowel sounds • Interleaved Teacher’s Book, printed in full colour and spiral bound for ease of use and durability, includes editable tests • Every ‘Extra special’ section contains a mini project that is perfect for homework projects and encourages communicative language use in line with the CEF • The Activity Book contains learning diaries for students to record and review their personal progress, as well as a complete original story • The Teacher's Resource website includes an image bank, web links, teaching tips, vocabulary games and fun activities

Uncovering Grammar Scott Thornbury

As teachers, we often talk about ‘covering’ grammar points. Scott Thornbury explains why it is more useful to think about how we ‘uncover’ grammar, to reveal the workings of the system to our students and encourage them to notice what is going on. The book uses extracts from exchanges in real classrooms, authentic texts and language teaching tasks. It provides lots of practical activities so that you can immediately and easily put the ideas to work in your classroom.

Jim Scrivener

Learning Teaching has been one of the most successful guides to English since it was first published in 1994. Not only a superb teaching textbook for initial training courses, it is also a no-nonsense handbook for practising teachers, helping you to succeed from class • • to class, from week to week, and from year to year. Jim Scrivener’s approach is not merely • theoretical: Learning Teaching is packed with practical and immediately useable activities. This extended edition takes into account recent changes in thinking about teaching English, and includes a DVD with both video material and additional teaching resources.
