Reading is often the most difficult part of language learning, but it is so important! Not only does it teach vocabulary but it’s a great way to see examples of varied sentence structure and verb tenses.
Reading can be especially problematic for adult learners because books for beginners are often too childish and boring. On the other hand, books that are interesting and popular can be difficult to follow and overwhelming. However, there is a solution! It is possible to find books that are level appropriate and exciting, interesting, and engrossing!
Here’s our next book for the week!
Graphic novels are a great place to start for new readers. Pictures can help readers follow the story but there are still plenty of examples of verb tenses, vocabulary, and language to challenge an English language learner.
This is an exciting and funny story that will also expose readers to some pop culture. Video-game lovers will be especially attracted to this graphic novel!
