Three Men in a Boat

Jerome K Jerome

Adaptation and Activities by Gina D. B. Clemen

Black Cat

ISBN: 978-88-530-1646-1

This 96-page graded reader is aimed at B1 students. The adaptation enables language learners to enjoy the humour of the original. The book contains material to support and extend the reading experience: pre-reading tasks, comprehension questions, exam-style activities, and dossiers which provide information on related topics, like the river Thames. After each of the eight chapters, a thought-provoking question (called ‘Think!’) focusses readers on an interesting point. I especially like the audio recording, which helps bring out the gentle humour. Users can listen to this using an app on a Smartphone or tablet. The book is imaginatively illustrated throughout. Engaging.
