Developing Advanced Reading Skills looks at the importance of reading in advanced level courses. It investigates how we read in a foreign language, identifies a range of reading purposes and opportunities and presents numerous enjoyable activities designed to increase student motivation. Problems encountered in reading at advanced level are explored and strategies are suggested to help solve these problems. Whether you are experienced in teaching advanced skills in modern languages or are new to this level, it is hoped that the practical suggestions made in this book will provoke further consideration on ways of improving the language learning experience for advance level pupils.
