Need to Read
Need to Read is designed to improve your reading skills in business contexts.
At the start of Need to Read, you complete a short, adaptive diagnostic test to ensure that subsequent lessons are presented at the right level. Each lesson begins with a warm-up activity to help introduce the topic and orientate you. This is followed by a focused reading exercise to practice both reading for gist and specific information. You are the invited to reflect and comment on the content of each article, and share your ideas in the Need to Read forum.
The Skills Training section offers further practice with new phrases and words in context, and teaches you how particular phrases can be used to express ideas and opinion. A Word Bank is also included to provide support with new words and a review of key business concepts.
