Reading books can be a great way to pick up new vocabulary, see grammar in action and develop your understanding of a language. ____1____

For beginners, I would recommend starting with something short and simple. Avoid the classics, for they often use very old English words and can involve complex themes. Children’s books are a great place to start. ____2____ Dr Seuss writes his books in thyme and they are all very funny. Starting with something like this means you are more likely to finish the book and want to read more.

____3____ The book isn’t too long and if you’ve seen the film it may be easier to follow. If you like reading about historical events, Anne Holm’s I am David is a good read.

If you’re not quite ready to read a full book, why not try Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes? ____4____ Or, try a very short book like one from Roger Hargeaves’s Mr. Men and Little Miss series. Although they are intended for young children, they are a good way to pick up some more basic vocabulary.

My final piece of advice would be to read something that interests you. Look at the short summary of the book on the back cover and see if it looks like something that you would enjoy. Think about the type that is in your own language and find one of that type in English. ____5____

A. Dr Seuss’s books are guaranteed to make you laugh.

B. The key to success is choosing the right book for you.

C. Reading can bring you a lot of fun as well as knowledge.

D. How much you can understand a book depends on your vocabulary.

E. For more advanced learners, you could try the Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

F. This way, you’re more likely to enjoy reading, rather than see it as a headache.

G. This book contains lots of short stories, based on fairy tales, all written in thyme.
