The Longman Academic Reading Series is a five-level series that prepares English language learners for academic work. The aim of the series is to make students more effective and confident readers by providing high-interest readings on academic subjects and by teaching them skills and strategies for effective reading, vocabulary building, note-taking, and critical thinking. The series also encourages students to discuss and write about the ideas they discovered in the readings, making them better speakers and writers of English as well.
What I like about Longman Academic Reading most is that it features comprehensive learning strategies, introduced systematically. Those strategies help learners to read the texts in the book with more ease, effectively boosting their confidence over time. The book also provides diverse reading experiences with a wealth of subjects such as Business, Psychology, Nutrition, Literature, Art, History and Education and a variety of writing styles such as opinion essays, diaries, letters and newspaper articles.     -- Continue Reading

I used Reading Skills for College from the Longman Academic Reading series in 2015 in my reading class for sophomores. I think this book efficiently teaches university students academic reading skills they need in their studies. Unlike online articles and emails found in general Reading textbooks which are still engaging and enjoyable for the students but not necessarily academic enough, the excerpts in this book are from an eclectic selection of literature written by scholars, philosophers and artists such as Margaret Mead, Susan Sontag, Leo Tolstoy, Eric Kandel, Jared Diamond, E.M.Forster, Sigmund Freud, Stephen Jay Gould, Amitav Ghosh, and Hannah Arendt — the kind of texts that are more suitable for undergraduates because they would need such reading experiences in their general education course anyway.      -- Continue Reading
