Science! A quick paragraph about why peppers come in so many hues. Though the sentence structure here isn’t too bad and the article is very short, I’m classifying this as ‘advanced’ since several of the words are quite chemistry-specific.
This post kicks ass, if I do say so myself. This kid was asked to imagine the perfect desk-chair of the future – what it would look like, and what it would do – and boy, does he ever. The chair turns into all kinds of utopian machinery. It flies, it helps you sleep, and it carries your books to school. Sentence structure is pretty easy and the language is solidly intermediate, with very little advanced vocab (one idiom, a couple of advanced words but not much). At six paragraphs, the text is a bit long, though.
Though this post is beginner-level, it’s also very condensed. I’d say you’ll have to stop and remind yourself what something means every few words or so.
A quick and simple poem about morning dew.
I was away for a couple of months towards the end of last year, so I missed a few awesome comments until just recently.
Grace, a commenter on this blog, brought her Chinese reading practice website to my attention, and it’s the jam. She has a fabulous collections of translated materials for Elementary, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced readers, including my absolute fav genre, Chinese detective stories. Yay!
