The Seven Best Simple Novels for EFL Students - Kieran Donaghy In my previous article I looked at the many benefits of extensive reading which include gains in reading and writing competence, oral and aural skills, vocabulary growth, and increases in self-esteem and empathy. It is also highly motivating for students to discover that they can read in English and that they enjoy it. For this reason it is essential that the books are interesting to students and at a level appropriate to their reading ability. If students find the books compelling and interesting, and can understand them, they may become more eager readers.

For students from level A1-B1 I would strongly recommend using graded readers – books which have been adapted by avoiding using difficult grammar and vocabulary for people learning a foreign language.
