Level 3

Grade – Upper Elementary

Level - Intermediate Reading/Conversation Skills

Reading longer articles / magazines / short chapter books

Month 1 Issues

Episodes 1-2 – In Space

Episodes 3-4 – It’s a Mystery

Capture.JPG

Level 3 is for upper elementary school students who are reading longer magazine articles or are starting to read chapter books. The subjects and vocabulary are more mature, suitable for this age range. The focus is on the harder words and phrases that we know many Taiwanese students may not be familiar with at this age. The pace is quicker, and these interesting stories and themes open up the conversation even more. We also welcome Jr. high students to join for some great conversation and fun practice.
