Skills in English Reading Level 1 Course Book and Reading Resources Booklet The Garnet Education Skills in English series was highly commended in the Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book Award in 2004. Do you have to read texts in English as part of your studies? Then you need Skills in English Reading. This course builds the skills that help you do reading research in English. At Level 1, you learn how to: * predict content; * deal with new words; * follow instructions; * recognise dates and periods; * locate information within a text; * identify the topic sentences; * skim the topic sentences for the main points; * understand chronological markers; * understand simple discourse markers; * understand pronoun reference; * understand simple lexical cohesion; * transfer information from a text to a chart; * read actively. As well as preparing students for entry into English-medium study, the Skills in English Course is ideal for students who wish to improve their scores in skills-based examinations for university entry requirements, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Rather than focusing on exam preparation, Skills in English teaches the necessary skills as part of a systematic programme of language development. Skills in English courses are also available in Listening, Speaking and Writing. See the Skills in English website at skillsinenglish.com for additional materials and help.
