Two main challenges arise when teaching beginners: firstly, that they need to have built up some basic English vocabulary before tackling written work and secondly that some have not been given the chance to learn to read in any language as yet. In addition, although excellent, some available resources also assume a level of affluence and family support which our students may not have. For these reasons I have created a few easy reading slide shows. Some are for improving everyday vocabulary. Others may have specific grammar or vocabulary focus. All are a starter for conversations.
