The Learn English with Short Stories series does not need to be listened to in order, as all of the stories are independent from one another. This eleventh section includes two thrilling science fiction stories. Each unique science fiction story comes with vocabulary and definitions before and during the tale. This guide also offers two multiple-choice vocabulary exercises after each story, allowing you to practice your newly learned terms and idioms.
