The Learn English with Short Stories series does not need to be read in order, as all of the stories are independent from one another. This 10th section includes two thrilling science fiction stories. Each unique science fiction story comes with highlighted 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. It is suitable for intermediate to advanced English learners.
Wormhole Effect: Madeline, a Ph.D. student, is determined to expose the truth about black holes. Her calculations prove there is a wormhole beyond the horizon of every black hole. Hoping to make history and impress her long-time colleague and secret crush, she ignores all advice about picking an easier thesis. Her efforts lead to something even Madeline couldn't have predicted.
Forgotten Human: In a time when cyborgs have taken over Earth, Mia is just another human experiment. Shot into space for research, her pod is lost and lands on another planet. When the cyborgs finally locate her, she thinks this is the end for her. Little does she know, there is a half-cyborg among them - and he's not there to complete his assigned mission.
Any additional comments?
The first story led to some deep discussions about the universe with my ESL students. I am intrigued by the concept the story puts forth. I wasn't a huge fan of the second story, but two of my students said they really enjoyed it. This audiobook definitely added some creativity to my ESL lessons.
