Book Recommendation 2 – English books for low and intermediate level students

Do you want to read more in English, but find the level of books too difficult? For our latest book recommendation, the LINGUA FRANCA Sprachschule blog is introducing not an individual book, but two types of books that can help lower and intermediate level students enjoy reading in English. Readers: These books are written for specific English learner levels. Many publishers offer these books. One of the most popular series is the Penguin Readers (click here for help in German). They include many types of book, from classics to contemporary novels and biographies. They are available from beginner (A1) to advanced (C1) levels. You can find them easily through Amazon or at large bookshops like Dussmann.

Dual-Language books: These books are written in two languages. When you open the book, you see the English original text on the left page, and the German translation on the right. Most are English classics, although you can find modern books too. Again, they are available from a range of publishers. Some of the most popular include: dtv, Anaconda and Reclam.

Happy reading!

But the book is also interesting for Einheimische – it’s always fun to read about your own culture from an outsider’s perspective.
