This collection of adapted texts by Petr Šabach from the Adapted Czech Prose series focuses on contemporary Czech storytelling. The ten selected stories are taken from the books Shit on Fire, Big Beat, Grannies, and Four Men on the Water. The texts, linked by their humorous storytelling style, feature topics such as family life, interpersonal relationships, and men’s and women’s differing views of the world. Šabach (1951) is one of today’s most widely read Czech authors. His stories have been adapted into a number of very successful films, such as Big Beat, Cosy Dens, and Pupendo. Each story in the collection is visually divided into two or more sections. The reader can answer questions before moving on to the next section and predict how the story will continue. The aim of the questions is to encourage readers to express their own thoughts on their understanding of the text, and even to start conversations during group work. The questions can of course be skipped over and the text read as a whole. – The collection is accompanied by grammar/lexical exercises for each text, a Czech/English/German/Russian glossary, and an answer key. The set includes an audio CD with complete recordings of the book. The collection is intended for Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, i.e. for intermediate and advanced students.
