English as Second Language Books

November 29, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

A friend of ours has written six workbooks designed for learners of English who need to improve their reading comprehension in order to do well in Christian institutions and organizations that require extensive reading in English. The books are designed to supplement classroom instruction with biblically contextualized passages and exercises. All of the workbooks are available as a FREE download, to print and photocopy for personal or class use, but may not be reproduced for profit.

Vocabulary Building for Biblical Studies is an intermediate level workbook of 15 chapters centering on biblical and Christian themes. Each unit includes a passage of 1000 words and exercises that aid the students in understanding and expanding their vocabulary.

Men and Women in the History of the Church is a pre-intermediate primer. Each unit begins with pre-reading questions and a biography of approximately 650 words. This is followed by exercises on reading comprehension and vocabulary building, and ends with discussion questions.

Developing Reading Skills: Jonah is a two-part pre-intermediate curriculum based on the books of Jonah and Ruth.  Each curriculum includes a Student Workbook and a Teacher’s Book and introduces a variety of reading strategies, particularly observation-interpretation-application.

Developing Reading Skills: Ruth is a two-part pre-intermediate curriculum based on the books of Jonah and Ruth.  Each curriculum includes a Student Workbook and a Teacher’s Book and introduces a variety of reading strategies, particularly observation-interpretation-application.

Israel’s Judges focuses on the beginner level, covers all 4 skills, and includes communicative grammar activities for class use. There is a listening component that can be downloaded as well.

Reviewing Grammar is a booklet intended to serve as a reference guide and a review of basic grammar rules for students writing in English.  It is not an exhaustive study of English grammar; rather, it is a compilation of grammar definitions, explanations, and examples from several grammar books.  Basic grammar points and some troublesome spots are addressed.
