All of the content in the Reading section is released to you when the course is assigned. Review the content at your course level or visit previous levels to review previous course content. Extended activities are available from the Extended Activity tab. Two types of Extended Activities are available and are described below:Stories- Stories are just that, a story that is written and narrated by native speakers of the language you're learning. You can listen and read along at the same time, or record yourself reading the story and listen back to see how you did. Stories offer broader exposure to your new language in a wide range of entertaining pieces—read poetry, take a tour of a city, or hear about a family's work on their farm.Select a Story you find interesting that is at your skill level based on the unit(s) you have completed in Lessons. Once in the Story, you will be asked to set up your headset, and then you can select from three modes: Read, Listen, and Record.Audio Companion - the Audio Companion, which can be downloaded and played offline on any MP3-capable audio device, enables you to practice course-content anytime—even while on the go.
