Readers Series

Whether you are a student, or an English language learner, or just looking for something great to read in English, the Word Power English Readers are a new series of books with abridged, retold texts that capture the best and key elements of the novels they are based on, with character notes, author biography and details about the time in which each novel was written. There is also a glossary of the less familiar words in each book. The English used in the Readers is very clear and the elegance of the language will inspire calm in the reader. This series will help both students of the novels, as well as students of English, who are looking to gain fluency in English.

Each book comes with an audio recording on a CD placed into the back of the book. The recording is read by an actor who speaks clearly and slowly for those less familiar with the English language. The book and audio recording can be used together to help students learn the correct pronunciation as they read and to improve their sight word recognition. Audio-assisted reading also helps to build fluency skills by allowing students to hear the tone and pace of a skilful reader.

The level of the Readers is B1/B2, and they are suitable for age 10+ because of story content and theme. We recommend them to you strongly.
