Hello, and welcome to our mini reading club! So, you know when you're reading something and you're thinking, 'This is amazing! I need to talk to someone about this!' Or maybe sometimes you're confused and you're like, 'Huh? I don't get it. I've got questions.' So what you need in those moments is another person, or people, who have read the same story to talk to. And that's exactly what we're going to do here. So go and read the short story. It's called True Beauty. I'm not going to tell you anything about it now, but it's only probably about ten minutes' reading. So go and read it! There are two different levels, so make sure you choose the best level for you, and then come back here for the discussion. So it's going to be really interesting to hear what you thought of the story and share ideas with other learners. So, happy reading and I'm looking forward to seeing you back here for some interesting discussion.
