Penguin Readers

Everyone likes a good story - so what better way to help your students improve their English than by reading a good story. Penguin Readers really do offer 'Something for Everyone!' from original titles to film adaptations, from classics to comedies and plays.

All books stay true to the original texts but are underpinned by extensively researched grammar and vocabulary syllabuses meaning your students read real books in language they understand …while all the time improving their language skills. Nearly every title has a quality audio version available, using professional actors in our purpose-built studio.

Furthermore, to help you with lesson planning, every Penguin Reader also has a range of downloadable support material including activity sheets, teacher's notes, answer keys and progress tests. To access these, teachers must first register on the Penguin Readers website.   Browse products


Penguin Active Reading

Research showed teachers wanted a special series of books that could be used specifically in the classroom with more exercises and project work. Penguin Active Reading materials allow teachers to take an integrated skills approach to using readers.

All Penguin Active Reading titles are supported by audio recordings and an interactive CD-ROM.

In developing this series we were very conscious of not destroying the students' eagerness to read a riveting tale - so all titles are carefully selected to engage students' interests and to quench their natural thirst for knowledge. Browse products
