A skeleton is found. An opal is stolen. The townspeople are superstitious and warnings are issued. Strange things are happening in this small Australian mining town!
Opal Crazy provides an exciting mystery and adventure story that will keep the readers guessing till the end. From the author of Romance on the Rocks this story, set in the opal fields of NSW, is especially written for intermediate and lower intermediate learners.
The novel is available on CD and provides an ideal package for students working independently. Alternatively Opal Crazy makes for a great classroom serial of 11 chapters. The Opal Crazy Workbook and CD provide a wealth of lively and interesting material to accompany the novel and develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
“These materials provide a great thread to draw through a term's work, as weekly episodes and exercises. They are also a good springboard to some cultural, historical and travel aspects of life in Australia and link well to other topics and CSWE competencies. Opal Crazy also provides relevant language examples for grammar and pronunciation study. Students remain interested in this well paced-story”. Terry Griffin, AMES Teacher
