I have to choose a coursebook for my students.
I see that in some coursebooks the reading comprehension is placed before the text and in others after it.
Placing it before the text permits to know beforehand what kind of information you have to look for, but can make the students focus only on some specific elements instead of the whole text.
When it placed after the text the students may have to read the text more than once and this can be quite boring.
What's your opinion on the matter? What is the best option?
I look forward to hearing your opinion!
