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!
Books written by celebrities have recently become extremely popular. I highly recommend these books written by actress/writer/creator Mindy Kaling. The format of this book is short essays therefore students can break up the book into smaller parts which makes it less overwhelming.
This book is funny and extremely well written. It’s also very modern and includes lots of phrases and pop culture references!
