This guide also offers a vocabulary exercise after each tale, allowing you to practice your newly learned terms and idioms. It is suitable for intermediate to advanced English learners.
'The Beast Within': Evan is a hunter that is always looking for his next best kill. One night, he receives more than he can handle. In a twisted turn of events, Evan crosses paths with someone that forever changes his body, mind and soul.
'Disturbed Souls': Max has no idea how he ended up a ghost or that his fate was to help a little boy find his killer. Together, they set out on a journey to seek justice. As they struggle with their ghostly forms in the physical world, they find out that justice is not always served in the way we expected.
Any additional comments?
I love the endings to both of these stories. They were easy enough for my ESL students to understand, but entertaining enough to not bore me to death during the lessons. I like to pause the multiple choice questions before the answers are spoken to let me students think.
