How can students improve their English without extra class time?
By reading a lot, at a comfortable level, with titles that really interest them.
When reading for pleasure, you should always read at a language level that is appropriate for you. Because of this, Oxford Bookworms are written to a carefully designed language syllabus.
And this attention to detail shows - Oxford Bookworms are well known for their extremely reliable grading, which allows you to find the right book, no matter what your level. Being able to read fluently gives your language a lot of power and it's extremely motivating.
But writing to a strict syllabus doesn't mean that Oxford Bookworms are boring - far from it! All our authors are expert story-tellers, and are skilled at writing excellent readers for language learners. We have the awards to prove it. Or you can pick up any Bookworm to see for yourself...
You have over 200 titles to choose from ... classic, modern fiction, non-fiction, and plays.
