Penguin Readers Level 3: Jaz Santos vs. The World (ELT Graded Reader)


Priscilla Mante


Penguin Readers is an ELT graded reader series for learners of English as a foreign language. With carefully adapted text, new illustrations and language learning exercises, the print edition also includes instructions to access supporting material online. Titles include popular classics, exciting contemporary fiction, and thought-provoking non-fiction, introducing language learners to bestselling authors and compelling content.

The eight levels of Penguin Readers follow the Common European Framework of Reference for language learning (CEFR). Exercises at the back of each Reader help language learners to practise grammar, vocabulary, and key exam skills. Before, during and after-reading questions test readers’ story comprehension and develop vocabulary.

Jaz Santos vs. The World, a Level 3 Reader, is A2 in the CEFR framework. The text is made up of sentences with up to three clauses, introducing first conditional, past continuous and present perfect simple for general experience.

It is well supported by illustrations, which appear on most pages. Hi! I’m Jaz Santos. I’m not very good at dancing, but I LOVE football.

I’ve made a team with my girl friends – we are called the Bramrock Stars! If I can be the best at football, then maybe my parents will stop arguing and love me more.
