Love and Death
Note on the Story – an Interactive Story
Note that the story is an interactive story.
That means it follows the general classical storyline but it asks you questions so you can imagine the details of the story and practise vocabulary and develop grammatical fluency while you read.
You can use the story to practise speaking with a partner. One person reads and the other person listens and says:
Uh-huh. I understand.
One more time, I didn’t get it.
or answers the questions with the correct grammar.
This is a good way to test yourself too. Did you answer correctly?
