This text includes:

• some compound and complex sentences, which may consist of two or three clauses;

• some words and phrases that are ambiguous or unfamiliar to the students, the meaning of which is supported by the context or clarified by photographs, illustrations, diagrams, and/or written explanations;

• a straightforward text structure;

• figurative language, such as metaphors, similes, or personification;

• some abstract ideas that are clearly supported by concrete examples in the text or easily linked to the students’ prior knowledge;
