You’d better start reading and ask your English teacher for further information or in case you have any doubts.

For further reading you can try a classic. It’s a short story by Edgar Allan Poe: “The Pit and the Pendulum”, which I recommend not to be read at night before sleeping ‘cause it is a horror story. You can read and listen to the story by clicking on the link below.  Enjoy your reading.
