概要:
For the sake of the Japanese learners of English who love reading, thispaperintroduces three different seriesof readers: Garnet Oracle Readers, Summertown Readers, and National Geographic's Global Issues. Garnet Oracle and Summertown are both so-called graded readers. The former arefor highschool and university students who studyEnglish as a foreign or second languagewhile the latter arewritten for businesspeople who have to learn Englishas a lingua franca. Both are,however, original fictionalstories, some of which are quite enjoyable and really worth reading. Peter Viney,Garnet's main author,can write a variety of genres: for example, Space Romanceis aromantic sci-fi story in an impressivesetting; A Tidy Ghostis a witty ghost story whose terror dramatically changes into sheerhumor at the ending; but,above all,his Undergroundis highly recommended because of the unforgettable character Tommy, amute elderly man who lives in the Londonunderground, saving theprotagonist in big trouble.Summertown's counterpart must be James Schofield. Although his amateurish suspense stories tend to be rather boring, his humorous stories such as Room Serviceand Double Troubleare readable with a lot oflaughter. National Geographic's Global Issuesmayseem to be nocomparison with these interesting stories since they are serious nonfiction pamphlets editedfor American high school students. Despite the foreign language, Japanesestudents can also appreciate the discussed, grave environmental problemsofourplanetEarth where the population explosion has been causing disastroussituations. In a sense, fact is truly stranger than fiction. So, which is more interesting, fiction or nonfiction?Ihope you readthe three seriesand decide for yourself. 続きを見る
