Young adults and adult learners at intermediate levels of English proficiency will love this collection of plays. Each one represents theater at its best - spiked with humor and written in lively, colloquial American English. Brief, inexpensive, and flexible, these plays are the ideal supplements to any reading, speaking, or conversation class. The plays can be used in different ways to improve reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills, and each student book is packed with a variety of pre- and post-reading activities that test comprehension and spark lively classroom discussion. Each of the four plays is adapted from authentic, well-known sources, but rewritten to be accessible to non-native speakers. The Teacher's Edition/Production Notes includes detailed guidelines for actually producing each play, along with annotated copies of each play, complete answer keys, bibliographies, and much more. Class sets of each play (10 per set) are also available for a discounted price.

    I like the short story of “The Necklace” a lot. The most impressed short story I have ever seen. It’s actually not a funny story, but it gives me lots of reflection. A normal man married with a normal but greedy woman. One night, wore a “diamond” necklace borrowed from a friend but lost it in the party. They then use all their money, on loan, to buy a similar one to the friend and after long years, they have just learnt that the diamond necklace they borrowed in the past was fake, not a true one. But they use all their time, effort, $ to buy the real diamond to the borrower. This incident rewrite the story of the woman, she paid for the lesson – need to work extra hard, her hands changed from fine to coarse, so as her face and body… too sad.
