It’s official, the second Raise Up! book is now available. It contains 8 lessons, all written for B1 (pre-intermediate) level by a diverse team of writers, editors and illustrators.
Four of the lessons have been written by Raise Up! co-founder Ilá Coimbra. These look at indigenous traditions, global English, body types, mental and physical wellbeing, and travel for blind people. We also, for the first time, have four guest writers: Hugh Dellar on working class culture, Heloisa Duarte on elderly people, travel and social media, Carlos Gontow on diverse families, and Sergio Durand on attitudes to immigrants.
The lessons have been edited by Raise Up co-founder James M. Taylor, with Luiz Otavio Barros, Ceri Jones, Karen Ohara, and Hugh Dellar. The lessons have been beautifully illustrated by Danilo Vespa and Cleber Santos. We are grateful to all of them for their contributions to this project.
A sample lesson from book 2:
All the proceeds from our second book go to Las Patronas in Amatlán de los Reyes, Mexico. Find out more about them here.
