English around us

A world of words


The beginning of something.

Books for me are the beginning of an adventure, an open window to uncertainty, meeting people -some of them old  acquaintances , others totally strangers- feelings no felt, words unheard.

What about you? What are books for you?

We can’t avoid technology, but I still prefer the smell and touch of paper, going into a bookshop and choosing that book that will take me out for a few days.

Reading is “like a slow version of TV ” said Neil , a character from the tv series The Inbetweeners. For others it is  a way of escaping from real world,  improving vocabulary, developing empathy….

  • How important is reading for you?
  • What type of books do you enjoy most?
  • Do you like sharing books?
  • How do you choose the books you read?
  • Should reading certain books be compulsory at school?
