Are you thinking of improving your English or of starting to study the British language? Of course, the best way to learn a second language is by going to the country of origin but there are other ways to do it, like listening to music, watching films in English and to improve your grammar and understanding… Read, read and read. That’s why we want to share with you 6 books for English learners. 😉

As I said before maybe you want to improve your English, start to study it or just keep it up. Find out below different books to help you learn English at different levels! Choose the best for you: basic level, intermediate level and advanced level.

1. Basic level books for English learners. 

book1.png“The curious incident of the dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon

It’s a lovely story about the adventures of a young boy, Christopher, who suffers from autism.

Christopher goes to a special school and finds it very hard to understand and communicate with people from the outside world.  He discovers that his neighbours’ dog has been murdered and decides to investigate the crime.  This takes him on a terrifying and challenging journey that changes his life.

The level of English in this book: The story is told in first person, by Christopher, who is a young boy; which means the language is simple and easy to understand.

book2.png“Thirteen reasons why” by Jay Asher

You might already know this one from the Netflix series but did you know that it’s actually based on a book? The main character is Clay Jensen, a quiet high school student. He comes home from school to find a parcel at his front door. He does not know who sent it. He opens it and discovers 7 cassette tapes. These tapes are from Hannah Baker, his classmate who unfortunately committed suicide (killed herself) and all of the reasons disclosed on those tapes..

The level of English in this book: This story takes place in the present, which means the writer writes using simple grammar. All sentences are short and the vocabulary is relatively easy. The interesting grammar and short paragraphs make this a quick and easy book for ESL learners. This is an award-winning book and on the NY Times best books list, so it’s worth a read. Then maybe venture onto the series.

2. Intermediate level books for English learners.

1st to die.png“1st to Die” by James Patterson. 

Four women-four friends-share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each one holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.

This is the first in a series, so if you like this one, you can continue reading about this team of women.

The level of English in this book: Patterson’s writing is fairly easy to understand, and has tons of great action words to learn.

book4.png” Bad Karma” by David Safier

This debut novel follows the trials and tribulations of Kim Karlsen, a television personality whose career obsession brings her some serious cosmic repercussions. In her quest to dominate the airwaves, Kim cheats on her husband, neglects her daughter, and mistreats her staff. It all seems worth it when she wins the biggest German Television Award, but sadly on the very same night she is crushed to death 

The level of English in this book: Easy reading, funny story though lots of underlying wise thoughts.

3. Advance level books for English learners.

book5.png“The Atlantis Gene” by A.G. Riddle

70,000 years ago, the human race almost went extinct. We survived, but no one knows how. Until now. The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity might not survive this…It is a rollicking good scientific mystery thriller about nothing less than the origins of humanity itself. The first novel in the Origin Mystery trilogy. 

The level of English in this book: “The Atlantis Gene” is like a sci-fi thriller. It has lots of action words, with some science terms. This combination makes it a little more difficult to read but great for more advanced learners.

book6.png“Game of Thrones” by George R. R. Martin.

It is the first novel in “A Song of Ice and Fire”, a series of fantasy novels.

Several noble houses fight a civil war over who should be king, while an exiled princess tries to find her place in the world, and the kingdom is threatened by some rising supernatural threat in the north.  

The level of English in this book: Many words are old and forgotten and other words have been invented by the author. You need to have an advanced level to not get lost through all the stories that happen simultaneously.

Reading books in a foreign language is a wonderful way to learn new vocabulary and keep on improving.  World Choice Education hopes this list of novels can inspire you to pick one of these gems up. We really like the sound of all of them.
