Reading regularly will help improve your English language skills by expanding your vocabulary, showing you how to use grammatical structures correctly – and of course, take you into the magical wonderland of stories! Regular reading DEFINITELY helps you to become a better speaker, to understand more in English conversations; and to improve your writing skills. I’ve created a few videos where I talk about how reading English texts is one of the BEST ways to develop your language skills (If you can’t tell already… I’m a huge fan!) Check out these videos:

Choosing the right book can be a challenge, so I’ve made some recommendations for books that I have read and loved over the years:

Love a Book Series? 

When you find a book you love, you never want it to end! (That’s why I love reading book series (and watching TV series!)

Reading a book series can be an excellent way to keep your English reading skills on track! Obviously, you’ll be able to continue reading a fantastic story for longer, but you’ll also become familiar with the characters and the author’s writing style. If you struggle to find good books to read, try one of these series below (and you won’t have to worry about finding new books for a while!!)

Nancy Drew Mystery Stories by Carolyn Keene

Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
