English reading texts - average level C1
Teaching in the age of Covid -
online learning resources. All texts and worksheets are absolutely free
anyone to use. Linguapress pages can be accessed by anyone, from
anywhere. No need to be on a school network, or to log in. Just google
for Linguapress, and take it from there.
During lockdown, Linguapress has updated
many resources, developed more interactivity,
begun to add audio,
starting with the short stories, and added a number of new
reading resources to increase the choice
available for teachers and students
Advanced English reading texts : while
the majority of texts in this resource are at CEF levels C1,
a few are harder (level C2) and a few are easier (level B2).
All the texts in this collection are written in normal English;
however in order to maximize their language
teaching potential, most have been specifically written for
students of English as a foreign or second language, or else for
high school students. Texts are accompanied by worksheets designed to
prepare students for the Cambridge
Advanced English (C1) certification or other national and international
English exams. Most have also been written for international
readers whose home culture is not British or American.
For this reason they avoid (or explain)
linguistic or cultural references that are unlikely to be understood by
readers without the background of native speakers.
Reading comprehension texts are accompanied by exercises and
suggestions for use in class.
