The above questions are discussed in the
Unit 2 reading passage, which is also a springboard to test reading
comprehension and memory and understanding of the new vocabulary.
The listening passage, a broadcast from United Nations radio,
tells of a related theme, recent proposals for Security Council
reform. In addition, the unit provides links to authentic reading
passages on the un.org and other web sites.
Learners have the opportunity to review and summarize the information
contained in this unit in the "Writing task". The "writing task"
in unit 2 provides practice in the skill of "responding to a request"
and "organizing information under headings". All exercises provide
information about the different branches of the United Nations
as they provide practice with the four skills of English. To begin,
