Read a Little Bit Every Day!

Find a good book and make it a habit to read from it in the evening and you'll be amazed what this can do for your confidence. In England parents usually read a complete bedtime story book for their children every evening.

Read from our ´╗┐library of children books´╗┐ ~ created by children for other children to read. Our first story is "Torry Makes New Friends" ~ enjoy!

There are many types of reading...

You may read for your own enjoyment, for your children, for the teacher and your classmates at school, for an exam. You may read for your poor aunt, who's in hospital with a broken leg. New research shows that reading to an obedient dog helps learners to improve their reading skills. Others read a dictionary on a regular basis! Do you want to see our reading lessons?

Here are some transcripts of listening exercises we've done during our Social Club classes in Suzhou.
