According to the dictionary, a kaleidoscope is a tube containing bits of colored glass and two mirrors. As it is turned, it reflects continually changing patterns.
KALEIDOSCOPE by Dean Curry is basically an EFL activities book with activities being centered on speaking and writing skills. It represents itself Supplementary Resource Material for Advanced Students of English.
Reading is to be used as a means to obtain information for discussion and to some extent, composition practice. The book is divided into three parts: Words At Work, A Picture Speaks Many Tongues and This’N’That. These sections cover a scope of everyday topics such as family and work relationships, human personalities, hobbies, etc. generally targeted at mastering speaking skills implying the usage of advanced vocabulary.
The book is what the title implies, an array of changing patterns designed to lend variety to the EFL classroom. The book is supplementary in nature and as such can be used to introduce a change of pace or different patterns of skill building work in speaking and writing.
