I've had a lot of trouble finding reading resources for my adult ESOL learners.

What I'm looking for are internet story resources at all levels suitable for an adult class. When I find stories at the appropriate language levels they are always clearly only suitable for children. When I find stories suitable for adults, the language level is often for fluent native speakers. I'm mostly intereested in short stories that we can read as a class and use to examine various language functions.

If anyone has any ideas or useful web sites with this kind of thing on, I'd love to hear about them.

  • Thank you for a good question. I also want to ask about the copyright - can I use LearnEnglish Reading and other available resources for creating tests in the examination format if I place them on the Internet (eg, on my site or any special site for these purposes) and don't charge for that?
