  • My class of intermediate level Thai teenagers loved this audio book. I began using the series because the course book listening activities were very difficult for them and not of any particular interest really. We worked our way slowly through the chapters, always completing the lesson plan activities. They enjoyed making 'wanted' and movie posters, and writing articles. We made a news sheet (rather than a full newspaper) using Publisher, which included their posters, articles about the crystal theft with follow-ups, a business report on Zeron crystal prices, a weather report and a crossword. In the end they were asking me to play the next instalment so they could find out what happened next and one student said she'd been and bought the graded reader of The Space Avengers at the bookshop (which delighted me as she said she'd previously thought she wouldn't be able to understand a Macmillan book). The range of activities meant that everyone in the class - weak or strong student, artistic or otherwise - could make a valuable contribution. I will definitely use this reader again, this time beginning earlier in the year and incorporating different types of newspaper articles. It was a lot of fun and made me feel that I was presenting English in a context that was exciting, imaginative, creative and meaningful to both myself and the students.

  • There 's an error in activity 2. They were guards not policemen who chased him towards his spaceship. Thus there are 9 not 8 errors in the newspaper article.
