"Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th-century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack.
Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.

    Scritto nel 1807 in un inglese che rimane attualissimo, “Tales from Shakespeare” è il testo su cui generazioni e generazioni di bambini inglesi si sono avvicinati – in prosa - al grande poeta. Utile anche per i “dummies” come me. Non so se sia stato il padre di tutti i bigini, ma sicuramente ne è il re per la chiarezza cristallina, l’attenzione al linguaggio e gli intenti educativi che traspaiono dalla commovente prefazione originale. Tanto da travalicare i suoi stessi intenti e diventare, a sua volta, un piccolo classico.

    non mi ha colpito particolarmente.
    ad ogni modo scorrevole e ben scritto.

    Read it sometimes, and I don't read the stories in order. Don't really like reading plays so this book is good for me because it converted the plays into short stories. So, it is quite lovely, Thanks to the Lamb brother and sister!!!

    Ma Shakespeare una via di mezzo tra finale drammatico e l'happy-ending proprio non ti piace?
