Every language learner is always told to READ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE in order to improve their English. Teachers love to tell students that reading is the best way to improve vocabulary. This might be true but actually you probably spend most of the day reading anyway… newspapers, online content, emails, work or study related texts etc etc.
We say, don’t make reading a “task” make it a pleasure! And there is no better place to do this than at a Language in Group school. The reason we say this is because it’s great to read a book about the place you visit.
The books we are going to recommend are all classics and will give you a chance to compare how the place once was with how it is now. If you choose Language in Dublin then try James Joyce’s Dubliners. This is a collection of short stories about colourful characters living in this city 100 years ago. If you decide to go to Language in London then you really should read Charles Dickens’s Oliver Twist. How has London changed since the Victorian times? And for those heading for Language in Totnes in beautiful Devon then make sure you have a copy of Agatha Christie’s Murder in the Vicarage. You’ll be left guessing “who done it” until the last pages.
