An ESOL beginner reader and tutor resources CD-ROM
A young man flees his native Afghanistan in the back of a truck, in search of safety in Canada. Tricked by the very people he hoped would save him, Mehdi embarks on a new life in England. A beginner reader ideal for ESOL use.
“The most impressive part of the story is that it is not a bland, ‘happy end’ narrative, but poses questions and raises issues that can be discussed by learners. This shows respect for the learners’ views and credits them appropriately with the skills that are beyond their language skills.”
Jo-Ann Delaney, Director of Quality Improvement, Tower Hamlets College
Mehdi’s Story Tutor Resources CD-ROM
A comprehensive set of tutor resources and student worksheets on CD-ROM support the reading book, mapped to the ESOL Curriculum.
“The resources are excellent and cover visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles. The core curriculum references are also very useful as learners’ progression through the curriculum can easily be tracked. Learners usually like a variety of activities, which is clearly provided by these resources.”
Patricia Jones, Learning Resources Centre Manager, Malvern Hills College
