Perfect Reads

Reading forms an integral part of Straightforward – especially as there is a short graded reader in every Workbook.

In this section, we will recommend additional Macmillan Readers perfect for your students to read alongside their Straightforward language learning. As these are level-linked they will support both the original and second edition of Straightforward.

For each level, we have recommended three titles for your students to try so simply click on the level to take a look at the free supporting resources that are on offer for each of them.

Many of our Readers are now available as eBooks. Check out what you can get on your eReader!
