child_reading_outdoors (clipart)In his book “The Power of reading” (Heinemann, 2004), Stephen Krashen tells us that free voluntary reading (=reading anything for your pleasure) is one of the best ways to learn language. You’ll gain better comprehension, writing style, vocabulary, spelling and grammar.

These are useful not only in English classes but also for any study and all your life, even on the Internet, you need to read instruction manuals, contracts, newspapers, books…

 So, just READ:

  • For your pleasure
  • To enrich your vocabulary
  • To better succeed in studies
  • TV vocabulary is too poor
  • Necessary all life long
  • Greater pleasure when you are read aloud, so enjoy story reading times
  • Role model, so parents read/model/talk about
