Life Topics is an online textbook for English as a Second Language (ESL) and other students of English. It adopts a bottom-up approach to learning, inspiring students to think creatively and critically over a wide range of complex issues in simple, natural, straightforward language. Designed for the widest range of students, the simplified vocabulary allows lower-level students to understand and more advanced students gain from the range and depth of ideas. The classroom-tested lessons contain:
A mix of national and international issues which are interesting, relevant, sometimes serious, sometimes lighthearted, always stimulating
Innovative comprehension exercises which encourage students to read carefully and think critically
Thought-provoking writing, discussion, and debate activities
Life Topics can be used online with computer labs, skype, places with WiFi, etc.
