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 first book for the week!


This book is my NUMBER ONE recommendation for learners and teachers. The book written from the perspective of a child so the language used isn’t too complicated. However, subject matter is very mature. This book will engross readers and there’s plenty of material for learning new vocabulary and general language use. It’s also an important lesson in American history. I can not recommend this book enough!
