Way Ahead is a literature-based reading course designed for the advanced high school and college/university English language student. Used as a full-year English course textbook, this book will build the students' reading skills through guided readings and exercises. The carefully selected reading topics, along with ample writing, grammar and conversation practice, make this book an excellent choice for the teacher looking for a multi-skills textbook for the reading-focus class. Used by the student for self-study, each chapter in Way Ahead is easy to follow from section to section. The readings, discussions and vocabulary presentations are written in a non-technical and accessible style, while also providing the curious learner a path for further investigation and study.

The first reading in each chapter is followed by a discussion of selected literary devices. The student will learn how to recognize the devices and how an understanding of these devices will aid in reading comprehension. The main vocabulary section occupies the center of each chapter and prepares the student for the second reading. Several grammar points are also presented which relate to both readings.

The approach of Way Ahead is highly integrated. A central theme of the literature selection of each chapter's Reading 1 is further explored in Reading 2. Also, examples of literary devices used in the literature selections are explained and discussed. Further, all the grammar tips are supported by clear examples from the readings.

The approach is also versatile. The teacher, or the self-study student, can opt to focus on certain chapter elements while leaving out others. For example, he or she may teach only one or two grammar tips per chapter. Similarly, some devices might warrant more study time than others, depending on the nature of the course and the needs of the students. In other words, this book is useful for a variety of learning situations and can serve both the English major as well as the general English language student.

This book features:
o Fifteen chapters on a variety of topics grouped into five unit: Travel, Science & Technology, Society, Music & Art, Global Issues
o An abundance of vocabulary presented with exercises for practice, with over 700 words and expressions from the chapter readings
o CEFR levels of the words in the chapters' main vocabulary section (approximate percentages): A1-A2(28%), B1-B2(46%), C1-C2(26%)
